(Airdate: December 7, 2022) What is our relationship with time? If we were to “think like a geologist”, would that relationship change and how might that change how humans impact the Earth on which we all live? Explore geological evidence and understanding of the passage of time with Nan Evans and Marcia Bjournerud, Professor of Geology and Environmental Studies at Lawrence University in Wisconsin.

Booklovers’ Cafe – Diane Urbani, All My Love

(Airdate: December 6, 2022) Cris invites Diane Urbani de la Paz into the studio to talk about her personal history All My Love, a story of Love and War, set during World War II. This book was inspired by 430 letters written by Don Lusk to his bride Anne.  Letters are read on this program by Phil Lusk, Don’s son. History jumps out of a textbook and the love story parallels Diane’s own story of love and the search for places of meaning for the Lusk family. Diane also gives tips on how to successfully write and publish a book on your own.

Chimacum Arts & Crafts Fair

(Airdate: December 5, 2022) Jim Burke has a conversation with Flavia Heineman and Tami Robocker about the upcoming Chimacum Arts & Crafts Fair, which benefits Chimacum Schools, and other schools in East Jefferson County. Then Jim interviews Willie Bence about the recent windstorm fallout, and discusses the ways in which we can be prepared for any future disruptions by assembling disaster kits; “go buckets” and “go bags.”
