About Us

Welcome to Ro Knows! The podcast about good times with smart people. I'm blessed with the paradox of being a know-it-all and a life-long student.

Ro Knows: Cats

So unfortunately, being an amateur podcaster comes with some hard lessons - this week it was about having enough hard drive space! we lost a good 7 minutes of a conversation about declawing, and how painful it can be for your kitty. Essentially, no matter what way it is done (old-school, laser or scalpel), your cat can experience a lot of long-term and post-op pain from declawing including phantom limb syndrome.

Ro Knows: High School

EOnce upon a time Sean, Sam, Hirsh, Clarissa and Ro went to a Regional Arts program high school together called Cawthra Park. Cawthra students have 'majors' including music, drama, dance and visual arts. So did it impact their lives in the long run? Did high school even matter? http://schools.peelschools.org/sec/cawthrapark/regionalarts/Pages/default.aspx music by soundcloud.com/gregmcgovern
