Marc Namblard est audio-naturaliste. Il "chasse le silence" pour enregistrer les sons de la nature et des animaux. En France, les zones de silence sans bruit d'origine humaine sont devenues extrêmement rares et précieuses. Notre chasseur est contraint de parcourir plus de 600 km depuis les Vosges pour se rendre en Lozère, l'un des départements les plus silencieux de France. Très peu de trafic aérien et routier, peu de vent, et une riche faune sauvage. Sa mission du jour est de piéger le brâme du cerf. Il lui faut pour cela une base de silence la plus pure possible sur laquelle peindre au micro son paysage sonore. Rendez-vous entre le Causse Méjean et le Mont Aigoual. Les lieux précis de "chasse" seront tenus secrets, pour ne pas troubler la magie du silence... Enregistrement : octobre 17 - Mise en ondes & mix : Samuel Hirsch - Prises de sons : Aurélien Frances et Marc Namblard - Réalisation : Aurélien Frances
Ett nytt avsnitt av podcasten Stadens syskonserie Var kommer du ifrån? En intervjupodd där vi träffar människor som vi är nyfikna på och pratar om deras hemorter. I det här avsnittet träffar vi musikern och låtskrivaren Tomas Andersson Wij, från Fruängen, slutstationen på tunnelbanans röde linje 14. Förorten som ritades upp på tre nätter av stadsbyggarna. Det blir en resa längs folkhemsförortens bläckfiskarmar, in i dess dunkla träddungar, öppna allmänningar och smala gångtunnlar, vidare till Hälsinglands fria stora skogar och sedan med de gröna tunnelbanevagnarna, med linje 14 in till storstadens lockande centrum – tidigt 1990-talet just när en stad i norra Europas utkanter börjar bli upptagen med sig själv på ett helt nytt sätt. Till The Capital of Scandinavia "bland de tvångsmässigt skämtande / bland ironiker och hämnare".

Kinari Webb’s philosophy as a scientist is shaped by her experience of the fall of the Berlin Wall as a teenager. Kinari Webb first developed the vision for Health In Harmony when studying orangutans in 1993 at Gunung Palung National Park in Indonesia. There she encountered not only a beautiful and threatened natural environment but also the dire health needs of the people surrounding the National Park. After this experience, Kinari decided to become a physician and return to Indonesia to work together with local communities both to improve their health and to preserve the natural environment. She graduated from Yale University School of Medicine with honors and then completed her residency in Family Medicine at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center in Martinez, California. Kinari founded Health In Harmony in 2005 to support the combined human and environmental work that she planned in Indonesia. After a year of traveling around Indonesia looking for the best site for this program (unmet health care needs, forest that could still be saved and a responsive government), Kinari helped co-found the Alam Sehat Lestari (ASRI, which means “harmoniously balanced”) program in West Kalimantan with Hotlin Ompusunggu and Antonia Gorog. She is also an Ashoka Social Entrepreneur and Rainier Amhold Fellow. Kinari currently splits her time between Indonesia and the US. This story originally aired on Sept. 1, in an episode titled "Metamorphosis."

Bernard Madoff may be a fading memory from the past, but for reporter Steve Fishman, the fallen financier’s story holds lessons for today. Madoff masterminded one of the biggest Ponzi schemes in history, duping thousands of investors out of tens of billions of dollars. His scam rocked Wall Street for years. In this episode, we trace the rise and fall of Madoff through Fishman, who spent years interviewing investors, regulators and even Madoff himself from inside federal prison. We learn how Madoff pulled off his scam, and why nobody caught on for decades. We also hear from experts who say that investors still are vulnerable to financial fraud, especially in the era of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. --- Head over to revealnews.org for more of our reporting.

On this Making Contact encore, we head to Soseongri, a small village nestled in the mountains of Seongju County. There, grandmas and grandpas in the 70s, 80s, and 90s have gone from quietly farming to organizing daily protests and blockades to stop THAAD. THAAD is part of a missile defense system that gives the U.S. the ability to carry out a nuclear first strike. The region has historically been Korea’s conservative stronghold, but with the deployment of THAAD, people are re-evaluating the history they’ve been taught their entire lives.

I set down my flaming sword long enough to stare into a hunting trip photo at my Grandfather's memorial. It shows two men, and him between them in a dress and wig-hilarious joke (everyone laughed), "abomination" an Uncle scoffs casual-like now, tells story: "that's the ugliest woman I ever saw" man driving by says to man in passenger seat (everyone laughs). See: sadness and shame felt in my painted toenails hidden in socks, the tie too tight around my neck, clueless compliments about my long hair and hoops. Retell the story a different way: at 10, a buck strung for skinning from the eaves; the droppings he cut out and put in my palm. I can never breathe in church, but this morning I took communion for the first time in 9 years, for the old man-God knows why. Over his grave beside his stillborn first daughter's, I become the hospital where he died-Queen of the Valley (think meanest motherfucker: full crown of antlers on my head, long locks of weeping willow dyed with blood trailing in the wind, time turned back on itself, a naked Eve naming all the animals). Pulling my dress off the hanger, I bear witness: the empty center of the universe like a liver spot; wind in my hair, sun on my bare shoulders; and under the ground, hidden in the urn, his miserable ashes in drag. *Title quoted from the obituary for James E.
