Show Notes

On today's episode, we talk about those words that have some sting to them. You know those words... the ones that get us cringing or offended when someone mentions them. Well, we talk about a few of the ones we've explored or experienced over the years. We also talk about how we respond to these words and how their meanings can differ.

#21 - NDN Coffee Science

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?

#22 - Ethnobotany

Ethnobotany can be looked at in different ways. On one hand, it describes the people-plant relationships that Indigenous cultures have always relied on. And on the other, it can be seen as the discipline within science that studies these relationships, plant biology, and their stories. In this episode, we dive into definitions, some history, and we even talk about aliens a little bit. We also go over why we think this is an important topic and how we view plant relationships. Here are some of the main ideas we talk about: - Definitions of botany and ethnobotany - Differences between botany and ethnobotany - The history of ethnobotany - Our perspectives on plant relations - Seasonality and Gratitude ~ Links & Resources: [Cryptozoology](https://www.metaphysicsinstitute.org/program-info/specializations/cryptozoology) Merriam-Webster Definitions of [Botany](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/botany) and [Ethnobotany](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/ethnobotany) [Ethnobotany History](https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0738081X18300592?via%3Dihub) [Egyptian Ethnobotany Pregnancy Tests](https://history.nih.gov/exhibits/thinblueline/timeline.html) [Lavender and Xenoestrogens](https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/lavender-tea-tree-oils-may-cause-breast-growth-boys) [Hippocrates](https://www.iep.utm.edu/hippocra/), [Aldo Leopold](https://www.aldoleopold.org/about/aldo-leopold/), & [Native Pragmatism](http://blogs.harvard.edu/hltf/files/2011/02/Binder3.pdf) [Camas](https://plants.usda.gov/plantguide/pdf/cs_caqub2.pdf) and [Bitterroot](https://www.mtpr.org/post/field-notes-all-about-bitterroot-montanas-state-flower) [Witness to Injustice Blanket Exercise](https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=KzXdi_RDkjc) Support the show by rockin a shirt or a hoodie for the [Being Indigenous in the Modern World (#BIMW) Merchandise Campaign](http://www.bonfire.com/ndnscienceshow). ~ [Like this show?
