Here at Crosscurrents we've been asking you to nominate people in your neighborhood who have been an inspiration to you and those around you. Alison Brown from the California Academy of Sciences called us recently to tell us about how her coworker, Elizabeth Babcock. We sent KALW’s Ashleyanne Krigbaum out to the San Francisco science museum to talk with Elizabeth, and she brought back this profile.
We’ve been honoring the people in our neighborhoods who display a healthy dose of passion in their lives, day in and day out, inspiring us to generate a little of our own. Listener Carmen Dicinque called us recently to tell us about horse trainer John Charlebois. KALW’s Alyssa Kapnik and Ashleyanne Krigbaum went out to meet Charlebois and his horses.
