You have two weeks to decipher the identity of our next mystery, #SamePagePlant. Your clue is: “This beautiful plant looks heavenly, but some associate it with Satan, because it’s impossible to kill! But if you see these leaves growing pale, it’s time for the sun to chill.” If you’d like to submit a guess, or a photo of you with this special plant, to podcast@jmrl.org, you could win a prize! 

Be sure to read chapters 7-9 of The Glass Ocean before our next episode on June 10. Don’t have time to listen to the whole podcast but still want to participate in Overbooked? Check out our Overbooked video for visuals and the audio from today’s discussion on JMRL’s YouTube!

As always, please email podcast@jmrl.org with comments, suggestions, ideas, or anything else. We’d love to hear from you.
