Spike Carlsen joins us to talk about A Splintered History of Wood, a celebration of a material that one could argue makes our civilization possible. He will be reading August 28th at 7:30 p.m. at Common Good Books in St. Paul.
In the second half of the show, Cyn Collins talks with Nicole Mones about her latest novel, The Last Chinese Chef. Nicole Mones is also the author of Lost in Translation.
DJ Baby Swiss goes solo once again in the Echo Chamber. And, despite the fact that he arrived empty-handed (and had to rely on KFAI’s CD library), he cooked up a real fun ecelectic mix.
