    The Story

    Post  giovonni on Wed Dec 28, 2011 3:01 pm

    Through my daily travels and adventures across the cyber space of the internet... i will occasionally find some interesting and often amazing podcast listens ~ worthy of sharing here in the 'Mist'

    So ... i've decided to create this thread for posting them cheers

    First up from American Public Media's ~

    'THE STORY'

    Two tales from two amazing women...

    Part 1
    LIGHT AND ICE
    In the cold northern waters of the Labrador Sea, the first of this year's icebergs have been spotted. Camille Seaman's Shinnecock Indian ancestors hunted whale in the Atlantic Ocean. Maybe that's why she was drawn to explore the ice. She took a trip and began to photograph the wonder of icebergs through her camera lens.

    Part 2
    Saved by a Penguin
    Elaine Parker was working at McMurdo Research Station in Antarctica when a colleague told her that a lone emperor penguin was sighted a few miles away. Excited to see one of the creatures up close, Elaine headed out and spent time with bird... but then a snowstorm kicked up, and she could not see anything. She was stuck on the ice until the penguin returned.

    We all here are familiar with the well publicized Occupy Wall Street protest movement which began September 17, 2011 in Zuccotti Park, in New York City's Wall Street financial district. It rose-up quite admirably against the social and economic inequality, high unemployment, greed, as well as corruption, and the undue influence of corporations—particularly from the financial services sector—on government... Truly noble causes for the masses to take on. But this next 'Story' about a radically impulsive lone protesting young man - really caught my attention... Surprised

    WOLFER

    If you want to get people going in Montana and Idaho, bring up wolves. Should they be encouraged to live in those areas, or shot on sight? Wolf advocates say there’s enough room for livestock and wolves to live together, while ranchers argue that wolves kill sheep and cattle.

    Carter Niemeyer has been in the middle of this debate for years. He has wrestled with wolves to relocate them and examined the scenes of livestock kills to determine if wolves were responsible. He is a wolfer - a hunter of wolves - and he can help a pack flourish, though at times he must kill them.

    "The Story"


    Honoring Martin Luther king, Jr.

    Martin Luther King worked for change in many ways: protests, sit-ins, and in speaking from the pulpit. Today, we'll listen to Dr. King reflect on the formulation of his ideas. We'll hear his voice and those from his inner circle gathered up in a radio documentary from 1962, when King himself was just barely into his thirties.

    A Summer with the King Family


    Nearly 50 years ago, Gurdon Brewster witnessed first-hand the King family's dedication to service. In the summer of 1961 when he was a seminary student, Gurdon volunteered to work at the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta. He stayed with Dr. King's father, Daddy King. As a white northerner in the South, Gurdon struggled with two kinds of discrimination that summer - from both African-American parishioners and his fellow white clergymen.

    any change must come from the people...

    Physician Don Berwick was asked to head up Medicare and Medicaid for the Obama administration. He accepted and was in search of a new prescription for health care reform, but ran into many roadblocks. He tells Dick what it was like to try to make change from the inside and ultimately realize he was not able to implement the changes he envisioned.
