Voices From the Dust Bowl

In the 1930's, the Great Depression and Dust Bowl drove farmers and their families from the central states to California.

This hour: whether it is a mob of millions or one single voice, nothing changes unless someone stands up and says, "No more."

This hour: a one way mission to mars, a Russian cosmonaut's favorite music, the Voyager golden record, the sound of the northern lights, and more.


No one likes to make mistakes, but the difference between you (brilliant producer) and the guy next to you (average producer) is in learning how to use those mistakes to your advantage.
