Marc Steiner's Sound Bites: Language of Sperm Wales; Urban Garden at Frederick Douglass High School

On the newest edition of Sound Bites – The Marc Steiner Show's series about our food, our environment, and our world – listen to a fascinating discussion on the language of Sperm Whales, as Steiner talks with author and journalist James Nestor. His new book is DEEP: Freediving, Renegade Science, and What The Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves, and was featured in the The New York Times and Annapurna Pictures virtual-reality film, “The Click Effect.”

Then, a visit to the urban garden at Frederick Douglass High School in Baltimore. Two weeks ago we discussed US Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack’s visit to Douglass to see their urban garden and discuss the role of urban agriculture in education. Last week, Senior Producer Stefanie Mavronis and Steiner visited Douglass to talk to the two teachers who started the project — Amanda Briody and Chris Jennings – and hear from four of the Douglass Freshman students currently involved in the program: La’Asia Howard, Dominic Scruggs, Nykerra Williams, and Maleke Smalls.
