During the week of Valentine’s Day, In Other Words takes a look at the power of love in several forms. Contributor Lacy Roberts gives us a wonderfully produced piece about fishing, rolled cigarettes and love. Amy Cilimburg interviews her friend Dara about the universal nature of love as well as two little Wrens about their love for their dog and their absence of love for American cheese. Clark Grant called home to his mom in Arkansas to talk about familial love and the value of family.
Produced by Clark Grant
An episode all about what makes us afraid and how we deal with it, from stage fright to the fear of death. Contributor Beth Judy interviews Amy Ragsdale about her career in dance and the fears she’s faced (and overcome) on the stage.
Producer Clark Grant interviews a fearless young woman going through treatment for her life-threatening cancer. Last in the program is a ride-along with patrol officer Fiscus of the Missoula police department. We hear what she fears and how the encounter lessened Clark’s own fear of the police.
Produced by Ann Szalda-Petree and Clark Grant
Judy Blunt published her memoir of growing up in northeastern Montana, Breaking Clean, in 2002. On this show, which aired Feb. 18, 2014, she reads a chapter about the winter storm of 1964. It will chill you, make you cringe and possibly even weep.
Not totally unrelated in content, Amy Cilimburg, Climate Change Outreach Coordinator for Montana Audubon, updates us at the beginning of the show on snow and Sochi, winter athletes taking action, the XL Pipeline and boreal forest, and Montana coal. Blunt’s reading begins about 14 minutes into the show.
“Those who forget have the wind to jog their memory, wind slipping evenly through the sage, dusting across the fields. Watch your back, it’s whispering. This land owes you nothing.” –”Salvage,” Breaking Clean
