What is Juneau’s favorite Girl Scout cookie? Fine mints? Samoa? Or, Tagalongs? And what does the latest cookie, the Adventureful, taste like? Have you ever wondered what Girl Scouts do with all the money they collect and how much stays here locally?

Also on this show:
- The Weedy Wednesday Zoom gardening series, with Southeastern master gardeners on hand to help with any problems.

Weedy Wednesday, a Zoom-style brown bag lunch series, will kick off on Wednesday, March 16. Each program includes a short presentation and a Q&A session with master gardeners like Corinne Conlon, who enjoy sharing their knowledge. On Friday afternoon in Juneau, Conlon got into the Foodie Friday spirit and offered one of her favorite recipes, potato and leek soup, made with ingredients grown in her own garden.

You never have to go far to use a rod and reel in Juneau. Brad Elfers, during a fireside talk on March 11, will explain how easy it is to get to great fishing spots.

Steve Kocsis, a volunteer at the Marie Drake Planetarium in Juneau, has a passion for talking about the skies above. He also doesn’t let Juneau’s cloudy skies get in the way. In this week’s segment, he talks about the Big Dipper, the constellation found on the flag of Alaska. You’ll hear the Alaska Flag Song in the background, performed a cappella by Chugiak folk singer Robin Hopper and family.
