We’re very pleased to share the recording of last week’s amazing conversation between Alison Hawthorne Deming, Kathleen Dean Moore, and Mary Evelyn Tucker. As those who were able to catch it live know, these three wise and wonderful women took us on a journey into a variety of fascinating topics, most notably the jubilant music of the natural world around us and the power of that music to bring hope and help quell anguish in challenging times.
This version has been edited & subtitled.
