Show Notes

Today’s episode is all about coffee. AKA: the good old morning brew—the life-saving afternoon pick-me-up—and the fabled cup of Joe. But before we get carried away with all that, we get into some stats about coffee. Then we talk about some of the challenges of its production, preparation, transportation, roasting, and selling. This is a cherished drink that's faced a lot of controversy for centuries, having associations with revolutions, addiction, mold toxins, and the all-too-common "coffee jitters". At the end of the show, we talk about Indigenous farmers using coffee as a way to become more food sovereign. Here's some of what we talk about: - Coffee Stats and Facts - History and Revolutions - Mold toxins (mycotoxins) - How to avoid mold toxins - NDN Coffee Sovereignty ~ Links & Resources: Coffee Statistics: [Gallup](https://news.gallup.com/poll/184388/americans-coffee-consumption-steady-few-cut-back.aspx), [CreditDonkey](https://www.creditdonkey.com/coffee-drinking-statistics.html), [USGS](https://water.usgs.gov/edu/activity-watercontent.php), [World Atlas](https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/top-coffee-producing-countries.html), & [USDA](https://gain.fas.usda.gov/Recent%20GAIN%20Publications/Coffee%20Annual_Sao%20Paulo%20ATO_Brazil_5-15-2018.pdf) [Another Podcast Episode about Coffee](https://blog.bulletproof.com/100-coffee-titan-dan-cox-on-caffeine-coffee-and-mycotoxins-podcast/) [Coffee Documentary](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEDwRrjhnNs) Coffee History Links [1](https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/9781444347098.ch1), [2](http://www.coffeeresearch.org/coffee/history.htm), [3](http://www.ncausa.org/About-Coffee/History-of-Coffee), & [4](https://nationalcoffee.blog/2015/12/15/5-attempts-to-ban-coffee-in-history/) Coffee and Revolutions [1](https://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/2013/04/24/178625554/how-coffee-influenced-the-course-of-history) & [2](https://www.stephenhicks.org/2010/01/18/coffee-and-the-enlightenment/) [Processing the bean](https://www.coffeeam.com/methods-of-coffee-processing.html/) [Moldy Movie](https://moldymovie.com/index) [Mycotoxins Map of World for Mold](https://44uc8dkwa8q3f5b66w13vilg-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/RTEmagicC_HT03-2016_Fig1.jpg) [91.7 percent of samples contaminated with mold](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14726276) [this study showed above study's mold levels to be above recommended levels](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10849253) [Mycotoxin-Induced Neurotoxicity](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3179161/) [Ochratoxin A and Mutagenesis/Oxidative Stress](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2367102/) [Carcinogenic and genotoxic effects of mycotoxins](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3302714) [Coffee Bean Transport—A Global Journey](https://www.ronnoco.com/blogs/news/coffee-bean-transport-a-global-journey) [Cooperation, Fair Trade, and the Development of Organic Coffee Growing in Chiapas](https://www.mdpi.com/2071-1050/11/2/357) [Can agroecological coffee be part of a food sovereignty strategy in Puerto Rico?](https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0016718518303191) [Coffee and the Shock Doctrine in Puerto Rico](https://www.commondreams.org/views/2018/08/04/coffee-and-shock-doctrine-puerto-rico) Coffee Recommendations: [1](https://www.winonaladuke.com/coffeeshop), [2](http://www.australianindigenouscoffee.com.au/), [3](https://us.foursigmatic.com/), & [4](http://www.kaapittiaq.ca) ~ [Like this show?

#10 - Decolonize da Nations!

Today we talk about the Decolonization Movement and how this is something that's much larger than one word alone. We both agree that the exact word you choose isn't so important, but understanding the meaning behind the word is what matters most. So, we dive into exploring what the word decolonize means and where it comes from, and also some of the different kinds of decolonization that exist and where we might be able to apply these lessons in our own communities. We don't have all of the answers, but we're constantly curious about questions like: Why is decolonization important? Who colonized and who got colonized? What impacts has this had in the world? When did colonization happen? When did the Decolonizing Movement begin? There's a whole lot more and we realized pretty quickly that we can't cover everything in an hour-long episode, so we did our best to stay focused on a few main points. Here's some of the stuff we talked about: - IndigiFacts - Definitions of Decolonize - Land Relations... family or property? - Decolonization Methodologies - Space, Time, and Cultural Awareness ~ Links & Resources: [Decolonizing Methodologies by Linda Tuhiwai Smith](https://www.zedbooks.net/shop/book/decolonizing-methodologies/) [Indigenous Research Agenda](https://www.researchgate.net/figure/The-Indigenous-Research-Agenda-Smith-1999-p-117_fig2_287646954) [Indigenous Methodologies](https://utorontopress.com/us/indigenous-methodologies-4) by Margaret Kovach [#1 Pollutant of the Earth's Oceans](https://www.cigwaste.org/) [Where was Planet Earth 230 Million Years Ago?](http://earthsky.org/astronomy-essentials/milky-way-rotation) [Online Etymology Dictionary](https://www.etymonline.com/) [Being Indigenous: Resurgences against Contemporary Colonialism](http://www.corntassel.net/being_indigenous.pdf) [Google Scholar](https://scholar.google.com/) [The Art of War](http://classics.mit.edu/Tzu/artwar.html) [Cultural Clarity Article](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20519575) [Decolonizing Indigenous Archaeology](https://muse.jhu.edu/article/202308) ~ [Like this show?

Correction Reflections... Stoodis.

Although being wrong is a part of being a scientist, correcting yourself when you recognize that you're wrong is also a part of it. On today's show, Annie and Turtle correct themselves on a few of the mistakes that they made in previously released episodes... Mostly sciency-type mistakes about facts and stuff. Here are a few of the main points that were corrected and reflected about: - 100th Monkey Pseudoscience - The Number of Federally Recognized Tribes in the US - Operculums or Plastrons... which would you choose? - Triassic, Jurassic, THEN Cretaceous - Janzen's research wasn't in Africa - What's up with NDN Time? ~ Links & Resources: [100th Monkey Phenomenon](https://hilo.hawaii.edu/~ronald/HMP.htm) [21 Grams Experiment](http://www.abc.net.au/science/articles/2004/05/13/1105956.htm) Different Numbers for Number of Federally Recognized Tribes...

#35 - Seasonal Rounds

Happy New Year! We're glad to be back. On today's podcast, we have a conversation about a concept called Seasonal Rounds. This idea is something expressed in one form or another by all humans and even people in the cities can't escape it. The changes we've observed in the seasons is one of the biggest influences we have upon any changes in our behavior so we thought it would be fun to explore it NDN Science Style... We dive into this topic with our own stories from Montana and disguss some of the science that surrounds this idea, and we even get into what this idea looked like for ancient Greeks. ~ Links & Resources: [The Reason for the Seasons](https://spaceplace.nasa.gov/seasons/en/) [Wim Hof](https://www.wimhofmethod.com/) [Berkes Diagram on page 1257](https://www.fws.gov/nativeamerican/pdf/tek-berkes-2000.pdf) [Toasted Sister Podcast](https://toastedsisterpodcast.com/) ~ [Like this show?
