Pat, who is going on 107 years old, says she was surprised that her difficulty breathing was caused by a heart problem, not her lungs.
This week on Culture Queue, we focus on codes and the keys to cracking them. We start with producers Noel Clark and Mitch Skinner discovering how to play a German board game called “Felix Ab die Post!” without the rules. Producer Marcheta Fornoff looks into the super secret hand signals in our nation’s past time before the show returns to Mitch and Noel’s unlocking of a board games “code.”
Later, reporter Amy Friedman goes into the University of Minnesota’s recycling facility to find out where our recyclables go and to gain sense of the codes the facility uses. For our Top 7 this week, Mitch and Noel count down the best ways to determine the rules of a board game. Finally, producer Tess Weinberg catches up with The Flaming Lips and their rise to indie stardom.
