Former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade digs into the week's explosive testimony at the January 6th committee hearing -- and whether it pushes the Department of Justice closer to an indictment of Donald Trump.
When Diane read about forest ecologist Suzanne Simard and her research, she was fascinated and wanted to talk with her. Diane had that opportunity last month, as part of her monthly virtual book club.
Suzanne Simard’s new memoir is “Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest.” It’s the story of how she came to suspect – and then prove – that the health of forests is dependent on a network of underground tree communication.
It’s also a book about working in a man’s world, motherhood, finding her voice and presenting a new way for all of us to understand the complexity of nature and our role in it. This interview was recorded on May 26th on Zoom in front of a live audience.
