Your Call: How should we understand our connection to water?

 On the July 23rd, 2014 edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with biologist Wallace Nichols about his new book, Blue Mind. Nichols explores how we are beginning to learn that our brains are hardwired to react positively to water and that being near it can calm and connect us, increase innovation and insight and even heal what’s broken. What do we need to know about the power of water? On the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar.


Wallace Nichols, scientist, wild water advocate, community organizer and author

Your Call: What’s the importance of protecting animals in urban areas?

 On the July 21st, 2014 edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Tai Moses, author of Zooburbia: Meditations on the Wild Animals Among Us. More than 80% of us live in cities or suburbs, which means many of us are cut off from nature in our daily lives. But Moses says it doesn’t have to be that way. Urban animals are all around us, so how do you connect with wildlife in your backyard? Join the conversation on the next Your Call with Holly Kernan and You.



Tai Moses, former senior editor at AlterNet, and nature writer
