It’s the “In Other Birds” Edition. Amy Cilimburg of Montana Audubon takes us on a bird tour of western Montana, talking to ornithologists, bird aficionados, and amateur birders to learn what’s happening with our feathered friends in fall in Montana. What are the stories behind the birds we observe this time of year, who are the patient birders who find them, and what can you do? From the Bitterroot Valley north to the Mission Valley and back with Kate Stone, Jill Alban, Chris Filardi, Janene Licktenberg and Kate Davis- and, of course, the birds.
Writer and activist Barbara Ehrenreich (who was born in Montana!) talks about “Kicking People When They’re Down” on Alternative Radio. This excellent show was pre-empted by holiday programming, so we’re happy to air it, excerpted, on “In Other Words.” About 50 minutes.
In honor of summer’s great roll to an end, our program finishes with the last chapter of “The Summer Book,” by Sweden’s beloved writer Tove Jansson, most famous for the Moomin books. About 10 minutes.
This show aired on Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2013. Produced by Beth Judy, with thanks to Beth Anne Austein.
