In this episode, meet writer and musician Jonathan Meiburg, author of A Most Remarkable Creature, Professor of Sustainability Science Dr. Kimberly Nicholas, author of Under the Sky We Make, and Professor of Journalism Dr. Sonora Jha, author of How to Raise a Feminist Son.
Listen in as each of these authors shares the inspiration behind their books, whether that be a connection found with a remarkable bird of prey, bringing “climate change feels” into everyday conversations, or empowering feminist parents to raise feminist sons. Plus, hear what it was like for these authors to record their audiobooks.
Listen to clips from the audiobooks mentioned in this episode:
An enthralling account of a modern voyage of discovery as we meet the clever, social birds of prey called caracaras, which puzzled Darwin, fascinate modern-day falconers, and carry secrets of our planet’s deep past in their family history. A Most Remarkable Creature is a hybrid of science writing, travelogue, and biography, as generous and accessible as it is sophisticated, and absolutely riveting.
