This week, To the Best of Our Knowledge comes to you from our kitchens and homes. We're safe, but we've all been thinking about the people on the front lines of the pandemic — doctors, nurses and hospital staffs. We've been seeing them on social media — the nurses in NYC wearing garbage bags because there aren't enough sterile gowns. Doctors figuring out those weird new face masks. Those incredibly brave doctors and nurses in Italy, Spain, France, and the U.S. This hour we tell some remarkable stories of doctors and scientists who are saving lives.

On the far side of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, halfway between the mountains and the ocean, stands the little town of Forks. In that town, in a quiet neighborhood of modest homes and shabby businesses, there remains a dilapidated pink warehouse. Packed inside that warehouse, living in deplorable conditions, were once over 120 dogs. Some of the dogs were kept in crates piled high on shelves, arranged in rows along the walls, and shoved into corners behind heaps of garbage and urine-saturated straw. Some of the dogs were confined to wire-sided or glassed-in kennels. One was kept in an old horse trailer. Dead ones were stored in a cooler. In one of the crates was a black dog named Daisy. This is her story. It is also the story of the rescue of 124 dogs - and one snake - from the Olympic Animal Sanctuary, the only large-scale dog rescue in the US to be carried out with no support from local government. The OAS rescue was an epic narrative that extended over several years and featured small town politics, protests, assault, lawsuits, arrests, and a midnight escape, all played out to a nationwide audience. 1.

There are plenty of normal, decent women out there. This book isn't about them. This book is intended for the men who worked steadily over the last 20-plus years, helped their wives raise the kids, attended all their plays and sporting events, mowed the lawn, took out the garbage, fixed the sink, were patient and understanding during that "time of the month", and fully expected to be married for the rest of their lives. Then out of nowhere and for no discernable reason, the women they'd loved, honored, and cherished for the last two-plus decades couldn't stand the sight of them and would do anything, (yes, and I mean anything) to get out of the marriage. If this is what you're going through, then you need to read this book. Why? Because I have been where you are now and you're going to need to know what to expect, how to react, how to defend yourself, and how to cope with what might very well be the most difficult period of your life. 1.

But it’s hard to leave the old game behind, and on a train trip down the California coast, Steve finds himself pulled back into sleuthing. Soon he’s in over his head in four feet and eleven inches of mystery involving a fleet of priceless automobiles, a deadly assassin (or maybe just a faulty lock on a sauna door), and a secret train car filled with intrigue. Plus there’s a girl involved, which complicates everything. I mean she’s just Steve’s friend. And really, they barely even know each other. It’s not like they’re boyfriend or girlfriend or anything, okay? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Arte Johnson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/lili/001381/bk_lili_001381_sample.mp3.

Plastic: it's used to make everything from drink bottles and bags to toys and toothbrushes. But what happens when it ends up where it doesn't belong - like in the Pacific Ocean? How does it affect ocean life? Is it dangerous? And exactly how much is out there? A team of researchers went on a scientific expedition to find out. They explored the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, where millions of pieces of plastic have collected. The plastic has drifted there from rivers, beaches, and ocean traffic all over the world. Most of it has broken down into tiny pieces the size of confetti. For nearly three weeks at sea, researchers gathered bits of plastic and ocean organisms. These samples helped them learn more about the effects of plastic in the ocean. Follow along on the expedition to find out how scientists studied the Garbage Patch - and what alarming discoveries they made. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Intuitive.
