451: Chasing Scientific Holy Grails, 8/5/2022

From WHYY | Part of the The Pulse series | 59:00

3000x3000_itunes_thepulse_1_small Science is all about discovery — tackling the big questions that define our world, and hopefully our future. But some of these questions are as obscure as they are important. The challenges seem endless — with any kind of answer decades or even generations away — but, if answered, these quests could transform life as we know it. On this episode, we explore some of science’s holy grails — why these questions matter, and how close they are to being answered, and we meet the people who are leading the charge. We hear stories about the search for extraterrestrial life, what fusion power could mean for the fate of our planet, the quest for immortality, and more.

2022-08-05 REWIND: Climbing, Conservation and Capitalism

From Climate One | Part of the Climate One series | 58:56


The outdoor clothing and gear company Patagonia is known for its commitment to sustainability and environmental health, but its prices often make it synonymous with elite access to nature and adventure sports. Founder Yvon Chouinard began as a scrappy rock climber intent on finding and making climbing equipment and high-functioning outdoor clothing. Today the company is one of the leading U.S. outdoor retailers with annual sales more than $1 billion.

Rick Ridgeway is former vice president of public engagement at Patagonia, and was behind the infamous “Don’t Buy This Jacket” ad campaign, which advocated for sustainability yet paradoxically increased sales. He’s recognized as one of the world's foremost mountaineers, along with Chouinard and The North Face co-founder Doug Tomkins. Ridgeway says he and Chouinard struggled with making consumer goods and their interest in conservation. 

“It was a real dilemma. Trying to figure out whether we were part of the problem or part of the solution because we are making a lot of stuff.” Take the infamous jacket, for example.

“No matter how hard we had tried to make that jacket with no unnecessary harm, it still had used nearly 200 liters of water or gallons to make it. It still left behind 20 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions. It still created two thirds of its own weight in waste,” Ridgeway says. “And we were wrestling with that dilemma at Patagonia trying to figure out, well, should we continue to grow ourselves? Should we try to figure out how to redefine capitalism so that we can have a company that was in stasis, that would still survive without growing?”

One solution they landed on was growing food and fiber through regenerative farming, Ridgeway says. “If we could succeed in making products out of fibers that were creating healthy soil then we’re drawing carbon out of the air and putting it in the ground.”

The image of wealthy white people engaging in risky and costly outdoor adventures is often driven by the outdoor industry itself through narratives and advertisements. 

“One of the biggest scams that the outdoor industry has perpetuated is this idea that the outdoors is expensive when it is quite literally the freest thing we have, it’s everywhere,” says writer and social justice facilitator Amanda Machado. “But we've commercialized that, and we’ve turned it into a commodity. We've turned it into something where you have to buy gear and know the right gear in order to feel like you can access it.”

Machado recalls going on her first backpacking trip and having no idea where to buy all the gear on the list. 

“My mom took me to an army surplus store because that was the only place we knew that had wool socks and water resistant pants. I'd never heard of REI. I didn't know what L.L. Bean was,” she says. That can create barriers for people of color like her to access the outdoors, Machado says.

“If you can't see yourself in those spaces then it’s hard to feel invited or welcome in that movement. And I think the other part that we really need to address is that there is a long history of trauma and oppression that connect the outdoors to people of color. We see this with Black folks on slavery, Indigenous folks in colonization.” She says the legacy of racist or oppressive histories across the U.S. still play out today. 

Machado wrote an essay in Sierra magazine called “Why People of Color Often Feel Unsafe in the Outdoors,” partly to respond to the skepticism she often faced during social justice workshops with outdoor companies when she raised safety as a core issue. 

“It was so obvious to my personal experience. We would always have talks before going, like, is this a safe place to go? Will there be other people of color there? Will there be cell phone reception?” Machado says. “These are not conversations I ever had when I went camping with white folks.”

Blue Streak (#1598)

From A Way with Words | Part of the A Way with Words series | 54:00


In an electric car, the trunk is in the front, not the back. Automotive engineers refer to this part of the vehicle as the frunk, a portmanteau of front and trunk. For a while, the Jaguar company, which is based in the UK, instead called it the froot, a combination of front and boot.  
Candace from Berea, Kentucky, got married a few weeks ago and wonders: At what point does a person start being a bride? When, if ever, does that title no longer apply?
A restaurant manager in Kokomo, Indiana, had an employee who failed to show up for work. This left him wondering about the phrase left in the lurch. It probably derives from an old game similar to backgammon called lourche, the object of which is to one's opponent behind on the board, or in other words, to leave them in the lurch. In Old French, lourche means "deceived," "embarrassed," "trapped," or "duped," and also came to mean "a place where hunters lie in wait."
In Leonardo da Vinci, biographer Walter Isaacson notes that Da Vinci was fond of riddles, including this one: Winged creatures will support people with their feathers.  
Quiz Guy John Chaneski pitches a puzzle about the names of minor-league baseball teams. For example, which team's name might refer either to a type of weather phenomenon or a wooden roller coaster on the Coney Island boardwalk?
When Julius Caesar chose to cross the Rubicon River and march against his rival in Rome, he supposedly said Alea jacta est, or "The die is cast," indicating that at that point, there was no going back. The phrase is a reference to rolling a die, but does that kind of die have anything to do with modern-day metallurgy and in which one casts a die?
If you need a way to urge someone to butt out of your business or stop telling you how to do something, you can always retort, I'm the one milking this duck!
Ian in Clyde, North Carolina, is puzzled when a colleague uses the term blue million, meaning "a large amount." Along with words like zillion and gazillion, this expression functions as an indefinite hyperbolic numeral. Sometimes the word blue serves as an intensifier, as in true blue, meaning "steadfastly loyal" and blue streak, which, when used in reference to cursing, suggests a large quantity of coarse language. Similarly, the blue fires of hell intensifies the expression the fires of hell.
You look like the hind wheels of destruction means "You look terrible!" An earlier version is the hind wheels of bad luck. 
In 1975, Annie Dillard won the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-fiction for her book Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. A few years later, she wrote an essay in The New York Times with advice for writers and artists, calling on them to observe the world attentively and write with urgency.
Polly from Issaquah, Washington, grew up in Washington, D.C., where she and her family used the term food store to mean "grocery store." However, a friend from the Midwest teases her about this. Does anyone else call a grocery store a food store? Based on research from the Linguistic Atlas Project, plus anecdotal evidence in response to her question on our Facebook group, it's clear that food store is used by many people from the East Coast of the United States down to the Gulf of Mexico.
A kindergartener misunderstands the name of an event at his school, later insisting to his mother that he attended a pepper alley, not a pep rally. Let's hope that's the case, because pepper alley is actually 19th-century boxing slang referring to "a state of being beaten up," the result of being peppered with punches, but also possibly a reference to London's Pepper Alley, notorious for brawls and debauchery.
Amelia in Arlington, Virginia, was surprised to hear her wife, who is from Iowa, use the phrase getting the goody out to describe someone sporting a well-worn pair of sweatpants, indicating that they were continuing to get the most out of that raggedy piece of clothing. Since the 18th century, the term goody has referred to "the edible part of a nut," and can also denote other desirable things that take a little bit of extra effort to pry loose, such as crabmeat or the yolk of an egg.

OHR165: OHR Presents: Mark Alan Jones, 8/15/2022

From Ozark Highlands Radio | Part of the Ozark Highlands Radio series | 58:59

Mark_jones_prx_gresham_mcmillon_small Ozark Highlands Radio is a weekly radio program that features live music and interviews recorded at Ozark Folk Center State Park’s beautiful 1,000-seat auditorium in Mountain View, Arkansas.  In addition to the music, our “Feature Host” segments take listeners through the Ozark hills with historians, authors, and personalities who explore the people, stories, and history of the Ozark region.

This week, Ozark original multi-instrumentalist, composer, educator, audio engineer and OHR host, our very own Mark Jones recorded live at Ozark Folk Center State Park.  Also, interviews with Mark as well as with his long time friend, country music superstar Marty Stewart.

Anyone who listens to Ozark Highlands Radio will be familiar with the fun loving and friendly voice of Mark Jones, the keeper of our “Vault.”  In August of 2021, we lost Mark to Covid-19.  His passing was a profound loss to all of us, both professionally and personally.  Please join us as we pay tribute to the life and legacy of our dear friend, Mark Jones.

Mark Alan Jones was born in 1955 to Country Music Hall of Fame & Grand Ole Opry performers Louis "Grandpa" Jones and Ramona Jones in Nashville, Tennessee.  As a young man, he toured across the country with his famous parents making appearances on the Grand Ole Opry and the television show "Hee Haw.”  He performed with numerous other artists including the Willis Brothers, the Wright Brothers, and Jimmy Driftwood's Rackensack Folklore Society.  He also worked as a sound engineer for the Statler Brothers.

Mark toured with renowned guitarist, Doyle Dykes, playing in churches throughout America.  He was a regular performer at the Grandpa Jones Dinner Theatre in Mountain View, Arkansas, and was a founding member of the Arkansas Beanfest.  Mark spent several years playing banjo and running sound and lights at Silver Dollar City and Shepherd of The Hills Outdoor Drama in Branson, Missouri.  He also worked as a performer and sound engineer at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Arkansas.

Throughout his life, Mark taught private music lessons helping to preserve traditional folk music.  Even though his life was deeply engrained in music, he enjoyed working with the intellectually disabled and often used his musical talent as a therapeutic tool.  Mark is a 2021 inductee of the George D. Hay Society Hall of Honor.

In this week’s “From the Vault” segment, musician, educator, and country music legacy Mark Jones offers archival recordings of himself and a few of his friends demonstrating his true passion, the clawhammer banjo.  Hear Mark playing the tunes Mountain Whippoorwill, Cripple Creek and John Hardy, from the Ozark Folk Center State Park archives.

Author, folklorist and songwriter Charley Sandage presents an historical portrait of the people, events and indomitable spirit of Ozark culture that resulted in the creation of the Ozark Folk Center State Park and its enduring legacy of music and craft.  This week, Charley celebrates 50 years of the Buffalo National River.  This episode continues our tour of places “you shouldn’t miss” and other remarkable spots along the 135 miles of America’s first national river, as well as where to find information about park events, facilities and services.  Featured are interviews with park ranger & interpreter and Buffalo National River Partners Board member Kevin Middleton and Buffalo National River Partners Board Chairperson Terrie Martindale.

Living Planet: Walk the Walk


Climate protection is on the agenda at talks in Bonn. But back home, who's really taking action? We visit a budding environmental movement in Poland's coal heartland and find out how an oil pipeline has pitched environmentalists against the Canadian president. Plus, solar power in Kenya and a cool solution to LA's urban heat problem.



Katowice: A coal town that wants to go green


The upcoming COP24 climate summit will be held in Katowice, deep in Poland's industrial and coal mining heartland. Its air quality is among the worst in Europe. But the town is trying to clean up its act. And if Katowice can go green, perhaps anywhere can.


Canada's First Nations vs. tar sands pipeline


Canadian President Justin Trudeau has been vocal about his commitment to climate protection. But now, he's coming to blows with environmentalists and the provincial government of British Columbia over a massive oil pipeline

Can reflective roads help LA keep its cool?

Los Angeles has the greatest density of cars in the US — and a massive network of roads. In summer the asphalt absorbs sunlight and heats up, warming the air above it, an effect that will be exacerbated by climate change. But cool paving could change all that.

Lenny at 100 (rerun)

From Open Source | Part of the Open Source with Christopher Lydon series | 59:00


A tribute to Leonard Bernstein with Nigel Simeone, Jamie Bernstein, and Augusta Read Thomas.

Leonard Bernstein, the multi-musician, did it all in his lifetime. At his 100th anniversary this year, the only question people still ask about the man is an odd one: did he do enough? Did he leave the message he came to deliver? And did we get it? In all his careers, he was in the top rank: the world’s celebrity Beethoven conductor who rediscovered Mahler and Shostakovich. He composed a light Candide and a serious Mass. He was a crackling pianist, a songwriter in the Gershwin league. Master of Broadway and Hollywood, too, for On the Waterfront. And, no doubt, television’s greatest presenter of classical music for kids of all ages. But our takeaway Lenny for all time? West Side Story.

In any argument about who was The Most American Musician of the shape-shifting 20th Century—Gershwin, Ellington, Copland, Miles, Sinatra, John Cage, maybe Elvis—there’s no getting away from Leonard Bernstein, a giant figure, at the very center of it all. Early-mid 1950s, Charlie Parker has died young. Miles and Coltrane are about to record Kind of Blue. Duke Ellington is making the best-selling album of his lifetime at the Newport Jazz Festival. Leonard Bernstein, not yet 40, has composed ballets, show songs and two symphonies; he’s conducting Beethoven at Carnegie Hall and opera with Maria Callas in Milan, and in 1955 he is sweating through the birthing of something strange for Broadway: a Romeo and Juliet story out of Shakespeare, about gangs in New York. Dancers enact the warfare, to Jazz harmonies, Cuban rhythms. The show, of course, is West Side Story. Just as the tryout performances begin, Bernstein jumps to another of his many tracks and signs on to be conductor of the New York Philharmonic, which had been Mahler’s orchestra, and Toscanini’s. These are the multiple Lenny Bernsteins remembered on his 100th anniversary this year. We are focusing this hour on one chapter of the life, West Side Story.
