This week's episode of Spotlights features Mallory McDuff, PhD. She writes and teaches environmental education just outside of Asheville, North Carolina, at Warren Wilson College, a liberal arts school that integrates academics with work and community engagement. She's written many books, articles, and essays that examine the intersection of people and places for a better world. Weaving together personal stories and academic research, she talks about her latest book, Our Last Best Act: Planning for the End of Our Lives to Protect the People and Places We Love (Broadleaf Books, 2021).
The music at the introduction and conclusion of the episode comes from a song discussed in the book. It's called “You Carry My Love,” by Elizabeth Teague.
