Science Questions goes into the heart of Nine Mile Canyon in Eastern Utah, where the oil and gas industry has a stronghold. But while extracting natural resources, they are also preserving the canyon's rock art legacy and cultural resources.
On the show this week, I feature the new collection of transcendent songs from Richard Shindell, and the latest traditional music release from the Carolina Chocolate Drops. I’ll also play songs from new releases by Cindy Novelo. Bruce Piephoff, and Emma’s Revolution, to name just a few. Join me this Saturday at 8pm for Fresh Folk on Utah Public Radio.
The advice column "Dear Sugar" was taken on as a project by author Cheryl Strayed, in March 2010 where she found the way to being Sugar.
At the time, Strayed was waiting for an editor to make notes on a previous book, "Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail," when she was approached by author David Almond to take over an advice column she said yes.
"It seemed interesting to me. It made me curious. It was a new opportunity and I tend to be someone who likes to follow that, when something sparks my interest it usually leads me good places, so I said I'd do it."
But the column is more like personal essays, with practical advice and guidance in the mix. Strayed said she uses her own experience, to answer questions posed to her.
"I really try to address the whole range of the human experience. A wife who's husband has been unemployed and won't get a job, about a man who's friends were saying not-so-nice things, and what he should do. This column is about being human."
