This Is The Place Podcast: Some Trees Do Have Sex
This Is The Place delivers wide-ranging, rarely serious commentary on Utah "news." Hosted by Meg Walter and Chris Rawle, This Is The Place examines Utah-centric stories that range from inspiring and relevant to completely bonkers.
In episode 94, Chris and Meg discuss the defining topic of our time: tree sex. A respected historian says, “There's a lot of sex going on in plants that people don't know about." Who's having it? Who isn't? Is it appropriate to watch a YouTube video titled The Sex Lives Of Christmas Trees? When did plants get so raunchy? They progress to a more family friendly subject, lawmakers waging war against....flushable wipes? Yes, flushable wipes. Public awareness is raised for the 3 P's: pee, poo, and paper. Chris applauds lawmakers for finally doing something about unleashed dogs. They close with an unexpected heavyweight battle, Jimmy John's vs Parking Solutions. It's intense and according to one politician, contains "bad actors on both sides, and people on both sides who are trying to do their very best." One side says, "He’s called me names, and cussed at me, insulted my religion, and just tried to intimidate me." The other says, “They have tried to provoke us many times, gotten in my face and told me to (expletive) myself.”
