Jan DeBlieu – Wind


In the tradition of insightful investigations like Lewis Thomas Late Night Thoughts on Listening to Mahlers Ninth Symphony, and Sue Hubbells A Country Year, widely respected nature writer Jan DeBlieu offers a compelling look at a natural force that touches our lives every day. With a scientists eye for detail and a poets ear for language, DeBlieu examines one of natures most elemental forces. From a light breeze cooling a hot brow to a gale that blows apart buildings, no other natural phenomenon affects people as directly as wind. DeBlieu explores how wind has aided the rise and fall of empires, the discovery of continents, and the establishment of religions. Wind provides surprising, delightful insights into a force that constantly reshapes who we are and how we live. Suzanne Torens narration lends a voice of quiet, thoughtful authority to a subject youll never view the same again.

This was a great episode covering a famous rescue of a doctor at an arctic research station. I had heard the story before, but this episode went in depth with details and interviews. A thrilling tale of survival.
