EI Sunday Song & Story Swap Featuring & Honoring AGU Scientists

Earth Institute Sunday Song & Story Swap Featuring & Honoring AGU Scientists

Join host Andy Revkin for a special edition of the Earth Institute's regular Sunday Sanity Song and Story Swap honoring scientists and scholars working to improve the human relationship with this rare blue and green sphere we call Earth.

This show comes toward the end of the annual conference of the American Geophysical Union, which this year is online of course. Typically, there are a couple of informal cafes and song swaps during the conferences. We're doing our best to replicate that spirit!

A batch of musical earth, climate and ocean scientists and scholars will be popping by, including famed ice-sheet prober (and Johnny Cash channeler) Richard Alley; Karen Alley, a glaciologist and past U.S. hammer dulcimer champion; Gui Becker, a songwriting biologist studying patterns of wildlife disease; the climatologist Ray Pierrehumbert; the singing astrobiologist David Grinspoon; Apollo mission historian Andy Chaikin and more

Special guests include folk luminaries DAR WILLIAMS and TOM CHAPIN.
