Writer’s Voice with Francesca Rheannon
We talk with Leila Philip about beavers, a keystone species that we need to protect as we face the challenges of climate chaos. Her book is “Beaver Land: How One Weird Rodent Made America.”
Next, noting that the Day of Transgender Visibility was last week, we bring you an excerpt from our 2019 interview with Mimi LeMay about her memoir, “What We Will Become.” It’s about how her family learned to come to terms with the fact that their child was transgender — and how they came to support him.

Tidings from Hazel Kahan
This month on Tidings from Hazel Kahan, social thinker, writer and speaker, Dougald Hine, who is originally from the northeast of England but now lives in Central Sweden. His new book “At Work in the Ruins, Finding Our Place in the Time of Science, Climate Change, Pandemics and All the Other Emergencies,” examines the vectors of industrial modernity that have shaped us and produced “the trouble we are in.” He ends the book with some ideas for living “among the ruins” and what might be worth doing and saving “in a time of endings” of the world as we know it.
