Bill Radke speaks with University of British Columbia professor B. Brett Finlay about his book, "Let Them Eat Dirt." Finlay's research shows that parents don't need to fear germs as much as they do. Finlay says bubble wrapping kids to keep them clean denies them many good microbes that help keep them healthy.

A Hawaiian fish salad is taking Seattle by storm. It's called poke, and you can probably find it in your neighborhood, especially if you live in Capitol Hill. 

Poke means "to cut" which explains why it consists typically of cubes of cut tuna (or another, typically, seafood item) with a variety of sauces and toppings to accompany it.

The University of Washington is back in session today. After a year of protests on American campuses, what have protesters accomplished and does it come at the cost of the exchange of ideas?

Also, How To Be A Girl is a new KUOW podcast about raising a transgender child, and really all children who insist on being who they are instead of what we expected.

Bill Radke speaks with New York Times columnist Jessica Bennett about her new book, "Feminist Fight Club." The book includes terms like “manterrupters,” “bropropriators,” “himitators” and “menstruhaters.” Bennett says she uses comedy in the book to provide other women with a manual for dealing with sexism in the workplace. 

Bill Radke speaks with local independent podcast producer Marlo Mack about how she came to accept that the child she thought was her son was actually her daughter. Mack, who goes by a pseudonym to protect her child, has joined with KUOW to collaborate on a new season of How To Be A Girl, a podcast about raising a transgender daughter.
