The human population explosion and the extinction crisis among other species is such a topic for me, although I have not stopped reading about it. I recently finished Stephen Meyer’s The End of the Wild and Elizabeth Kolbert’s The Sixth Extinction. But I am not ready to write about it.</p> Thu, 17 Apr 2014 18:15:03 +0000 Mark Roosevelt 48660 at http://wyso.org Roosevelt Reads: April 2014 Conrad's Corner: April 16, 2014 http://wyso.org/post/conrads-corner-april-16-2014 <p>Conrad Balliet reads Kathy Austin's poem, "Observation."</p><p></p> Wed, 16 Apr 2014 23:59:00 +0000 Conrad Balliet 48546 at http://wyso.org Conrad's Corner: April 15, 2014 http://wyso.org/post/conrads-corner-april-15-2014 <p>Conrad Balliet reads James Brooks' poem, "Aborted First Lines."</p><p></p> Tue, 15 Apr 2014 23:59:00 +0000 Conrad Balliet 48155 at http://wyso.org Blues Views: Eric Jerardi's Everybody's Waiting http://wyso.org/post/blues-views-eric-jerardis-everybodys-waiting <p></p><p><strong>Artist:</strong> Eric Jerardi<br /><strong>Album:</strong> Everybody's Waiting</p><p>I've been following this guy's career since he first picked up a guitar, granted that's an oft used journalistic ploy, and it's usually fabricated. In this particular application, it couldn't be truer. If I dwell to deeply on it, I start to feel a bit aged.&nbsp; One very significant aspect of this Blues magic that guitarist extraordinaire Eric Jerardi weaves so well is its/his sense of timelessness.</p> Tue, 15 Apr 2014 00:14:00 +0000 Shakin' Dave Hussong 48331 at http://wyso.org Blues Views: Eric Jerardi's Everybody's Waiting
