Sea Change Radio (Series)

Produced by Alex Wise

Most recent piece in this series:

John Stoehr: Betting On Biden

From Alex Wise | Part of the Sea Change Radio series | 29:00

Johnstoehr_small Sometimes it seems as though Democrats are more determined to "fall in love" than to win elections. Lately I've been hearing, from both pundits and friends, that Joe Biden is simply too old to run for reelection. This week on Sea Change Radio, we hear from John Stoehr, the Editor and Founder of The Editorial Board, to get his insights into the 2024 presidential election. We look at some of the calls from media members like Ezra Klein and Nate Silver for Biden to step aside, discuss how Republicans are taking a much bigger leap of faith by re-nominating Donald Trump, and counter some of the critics with practical arguments for why the Democrats might want to stick with Joe Biden as their nominee in August.

Living Well Show (Series)

Produced by Donna Descoteaux

Most recent piece in this series:

Lions and Tigers and Hamsters

From Donna Descoteaux | Part of the Living Well Show series | 28:30

Mountain_light_2_small From the time Dr. Goldstein was a little boy—even before he had his first dog—he was fascinated by creatures both domestic and wild. After graduating veterinary school at Cornell University, he became a veterinarian in clinical practice, then director of zoos in Boston and Los Angeles, then head of a progressive humane society where he advocated for animal welfare. During his extraordinary 30-year career, Dr. Mark has accrued a lifetime of experiences working with all sorts of animals and the people who care for them.

Dr. Mark's life with animals taught him more than how to be a great doctor, it taught him how to live life. The stories he shares with us reflect those lessons. Each real-life experience sheds light on the challenges and hard work of the talented individuals who work in the world of animal welfare. These are stories that illustrate the tremendous impact animals have on our daily lives—they are hallmarks of the sacred importance of the human-animal bond.
Dr. Goldstein puts it well - “Caring for animals and their welfare and understanding the value of the human-animal bond is part of what makes up the fabric of a healthy community.”
