Program descriptions:

HumaNature - Produced by Wyoming Public Media. Stories of where humans and habitat meet. A man skiing in the back-country uttereds a curse against snowmobilers. But you know what they say—be careful what you wish for. And i

t was supposed to be a leisurely float down the Snake River. But when they lost their guide, a group of tourists got more than they bargained for.

Backstory: Untrammeled, a History of American Wilderness – We explore America’s fascination with wild places and learn how humans have impacted even the most remote corners of our country. Stories of how the city of San Francisco found a way to control the remote Hetch Hetchy valley, hundreds of miles away. Also, how our ideas about wilderness have changed over time.

Backstory: A History of Tourism - As summer winds down, millions of Americans are packing their bags and hitting the road. In this episode of BackStory, the American History guys, Peter, Ed and Brian, explore the history of American tourism. We’ll hear how the tiny community of Gettysburg, PA became a tourist town just days after the bloody battle. We’ll also look back on a western mountain resort that catered exclusively to black Americans during the era of segregated travel, and we’ll explore the links between tourism and the development of a national identity.

World Cafe – Amos Lee joins David Dye to talk about his new album.

Global Village - Songs about labor and working, the people who do it, and the joys and pains thereof. Hear Tom Waits, Lee Dorsey, Roy Orbison, Steely Dan, and others.


Folk Alley - TBA
