The cookies actually turned out tasty (yes I tried one!) and are much healthier (and way less expensive) than store-bought treats.

Pumpkin and oats are great for doggie digestion and peanut butter and coconut oil will help your pooch maintain his good looks. Let me know if your furry friend likes these cookies as much as Huck did.

UPDATE: Here’s a more permanent version if you want to listen after the KPFA archive expires.

This week around the interwebz the salt police take a blow, chili peppers reduce Parkinson’s risk, and why sunshine is important for more than just vitamin D.
