[89] Zoos, Weather Patterns and Bad Parenting

Hey! That’s My Hummus! has a few new features you should be aware of:

  • We now have a direct gateway to our “Shop Amazon” page — which you can reach at the top navigation of our website or, alternatively, at http://www.heythatsmyhummus.com/amazon

  • We also began a new feature on today’s show where we went over the weather for listeners in certain areas. But we’re not sure if this is going to become a regular occurrence or not…



    Our main story is one that has been in the news over the past several days: A child fell into the Silverback gorilla enclosure at the Cincinnati Zoo, prompting the zoo’s response team to shoot and kill the 17 year-old gorilla. And the entire internet has gone wild with reactions and responses.

    We talk a bit about these responses as well as about zoos in general: are we at a point where they should finally be retired? We also discuss the strong reactions people are having towards the mother of the child who was in the enclosure. And we end up talking about our own parental mistakes which have cost us those coveted “parent of the year” awards.

    How about you? How have you demonstrated that you’re not the perfect parent? Tell us what you think on Facebook or Twitter. Also? Make sure to check us out on iTunes and rate us. If you leave us a great review we might read it on-air!
