I'm Telling on You
22:25
<p><span>Nobody likes a tattletale. Running to tell the teacher every time your friend looks at a phone in class isn’t cool. Or maybe it’s the right thing to do. To tell, or not to tell: THAT is the question we face on Pickle today.  </span></p> <p> </p> <p><a href="https://wnyc.typeform.com/to/MSdymX" target="_blank">We want to hear from you!

Would An Elephant Visit a People Zoo?
20:35
<p><span>Ambika the elephant sure <em>looks </em>happy. She’s lived to the ripe old age of 70, and she pees gleefully when she sees her friend. She must like living in a zoo. And yet...a nearly 7,000-pound elephant cooped up in a zoo her whole life? Would YOU like that? Wait, don’t answer. Not until you hear what Ambika has to say about this doozy of a pickle.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><a href="https://wnyc.typeform.com/to/MSdymX" target="_blank">We want to hear from you!

The Little Engine That Couldn't Decide What To Do
17:27
<p><span>You see a train in the distance. But oh no! There are five people on the tracks, and they’re about to get hit! You run to pull the lever so the train will switch tracks -- and then, you notice something else: There’s another person standing on THAT track. Do you do nothing and risk five lives, or pull the lever, and deliberately cause the death of one? Talk about a pickle.</span></p> <p> </p> <p><a href="https://wnyc.typeform.com/to/MSdymX" target="_blank">We want to hear from you! Click here to send us feedback.</a></p>

24:58
<p><span>They gave the world Latin! Aqueducts! Really cool architecture! But the Romans also put on shows where they killed people (and animals) for sport and had a decidedly gross substitute for toilet paper! Does that make them bad people? Or should they get a pass because they lived 2,000 years ago and the world was a different place? Hmm. This IS a pickle. </span></p> <p> </p> <p><a href="https://wnyc.typeform.com/to/MSdymX" target="_blank">We want to hear from you! Click here to send us feedback.</a></p> <p> </p>
