Dear Dave,
When I'm traveling, I love to listen to my favourite podcasts, that I never get around to listening to when at home.   My favourite podcast is "Stuff You Should Know" sponsored by the "How It Works" team. Chuck and Josh, the hosts, are knowledgeable, funny and always easy to listen to. I also end up learning a great fact or two from every podcast. Here are a few of my recent favourites.


COVER YOUR TOOTHBRUSH - When you flush your toilet, some of anything in there turns into an aerosol and covers EVERYTHING in your bathroom. So always close the lid to flush, and cover your toothbrush.


TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES AT HOME  - Canadians, Japanese and other cultures routinely remove our/their shoes when you enter a home.   Most Americans do not.   Well, a recent study showed that 93% of shoes worn outside have some fecal matter on them...I don't need to say more.

USE SPF30 SUNSCREEN - Sunscreen with an SPF 30 rating blocks about 97% of the UVB (buring) rays if applied and reapplied correctly. Sunscreen with an SPF of 50 only blocks 98% of the UVB rays (and SPF100 blocks 99%). So, using SPF30 CORRECTLY (reapply after swimming or sweating) is just fine.


I hope you learn something new and useful each day also!
Dave Emery
