This episode is a special video and poetry episode with Prof. Eric Pianka, who you may remember from episode 5. After I initially met and interviewed Eric, he emailed and told me that he had some poems he wanted to record. Eric often ends his courses by reading poetry about the environment (which he calls “ecopoetry”), accompanied by slide presentations. So, I visited Austin earlier this spring and worked with Eric to make his ecopoetry readings and presentations into videos available to everyone. The audio-only version of this episode is his readings of “Requiem” by Kurt Vonnegut and “For the Last Wolverine” by James Dickey. The videos above are the real content of this episode.
