Finding Astonishment in the World Around Us Guest: Aimee Nezhukumatathil, author, "World of Wonders: In Praise of Fireflies, Whale Sharks, and Other Astonishments" The natural world is full of things to wonder about, from ripe peaches to fireflies to whale sharks.

But we can all change that. What Our Connection to Animals Is Really Worth Guest: Richard Louv, author, best-selling “Last Child in the Woods” and “Our Wild Calling: How Connecting with Animals Can Transform Our Lives—and Save Theirs,” journalist, and winner of the Audubon Award Animals have spiritual, mental, and even physical effects on us. And that's a real resource we should preserve.
