Modern Kenya Safari (4:37 or 3:45 versions)

From Jake Warga | 08:22

Safari tourism in Africa is changing. Tracking down big game is still central, but more and more tourists are also involved with conservation and helping local communities.

Love the French Way 3 - Bluer Than Your Eyes

From Charles Spira | Part of the Love the French Way series | 04:43

Edith Piaf in an upbeat mood, interprets a beautiful love song written especially for her by Charles Aznavour.

Blue_eyes_small Edith Piaf had a deprived childhood and tragedy marked her adult life. Most of her songs are full of pain and longing for love. However, in the song "Bluer than your Eyes", written especially for her by Charles Aznavour in 1951, we find her in an upbeat mood. It is a joy to behold.

The Gathering - A Modern Thanksgiving Story

From Barbara Simmons | 29:00

Reimagining the original Thanksgiving story

Gatheringgroupg1_small At Thanksgiving, as we in the United States gather to celebrate the "first" ceremonial sharing between Native Peoples and the arriving European Peoples, is a good time to hear another telling of this Story; an update, so to speak. To imagine a different kind of Thanksgiving Gathering--another way to begin making a nation together. This program first broadcast on PRI as a Thanksgiving special

The Penguin Goes A Courtin'

From Jonathan Goldstein | 03:55

Two of literature's great umbrella travelers-- The Penguin and Mary Poppins-- have dinner together in Merry Old England.

Default-piece-image-1 Before The Penguin became best known as Batman's archenemy in Gotham City, he was a boozing dandy who lived in London. The Penguin's friends all thought that if he just met the right woman, he might be inclined to settle down and avert the disastrous, alcoholic path his life appeared to be taking. His friends held a dinner party at which he was introduced to a woman they believed would make a perfect mate for him-- a singing nanny named Poppins, who, like him, traveled about by umbrella. Everyone thought the two eccentrics would get on most splendidly. Everyone, of course, was wrong.

#4 - Inner City Reality Check

From HowSound | Part of the HowSound series | 12:23

Katie Davis doesn’t look very far for the stories she produces. In fact, they often come to her…. on her front porch.

Katie Davis doesn’t look very far for the stories she produces. In fact, they often come to her…. on her front porch.

For many years, Katie has reported stories for public radio direct from her home, the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, D.C. And, these aren’t news-maker stories. They’re the stories about “how people live and what they value,” what former Washington Post writer Walt Harrington calls “intimate journalism.” Dispatches from the corner store. Observations on trash, the neighborhood hoarder, and conflict resolution on the basketball court. Her essays are simultaneously local and universal.

For this HowSound, we feature Katie’s essay produced in the aftermath of 9/11 — An Inner-City Reality Check. I think she was brave to write this essay given the climate in the country at the time. So was NPR for broadcasting it.

Currently, Katie is Senior Producer at “The Story.” She’s eager for story pitches from independent producers. You should contact her! thestory@wunc.org

Happy listening,

Rob
