I’ll be on the NPR show To The Best of Our Knowledge this weekend (April 28/29). The program is “Into the Woods,” and I’ll be talking about The Forest Unseen. Also scheduled for the show are Terry Tempest Williams, Stephen Sondheim, Marina Warner, and Stephen Long. I’m very grateful to be included in this line-up, to say the least.
Stations that carry the program and broadcast times are here. WPLN (Nashville) runs the show at 3pm on Sunday on its 1430 AM channel. WUTC (Chattanooga) runs at 12:00 (eastern time, 11am central) on Sunday on 88.1 FM. The show will also be available through podcasts, XM satellite, etc as detailed here.
Unlike previous interviews which have been live and over the phone, this interview was recorded last week in the WPLN studios in Nashville. The experience of sitting in a quiet studio, talking to people several states away, using a great mic and headphones was an unexpected treat for my senses. The studio was so quiet and the equipment so good that the world was stripped down to a nearly pure experience of sound. Just voices, hanging in a silvery space. It was almost enough to calm my nerves.
