This week we dip into the Living on Earth mailbag to hear what listeners have to say.
CURWOOD: It’s Living on Earth. I’m Steve Curwood. And coming up, some smell cow manure, others smell money, as the dairy business booms in Idaho. But first –
CURWOOD: Time for comments from you, our listeners.
WAMU listener Michael Colopy called us from McLean, Virginia with praise for our story on the environmental hazards of fish farming.
COLOPY: I thought Cheryl Colopy, who, by the way, is no known relative of mine, did a superb job. And, I think this particular topic, the threat to native fish in our rivers, is one that was very well featured. And Im hoping that youll do more stories of this kind.
CURWOOD: Well, Mr. Colopy, we certainly will. Bob Cartys Generation Next series about science influencing human evolution has been generating plenty of listener interest. Ike Sanderson hears Living on Earth on KLCC in Eugene, Oregon and writes that he loves the series.
"I teach Biology at a public school in Eugene and used the Xenotransplantation episode as a focus during one days activities. The piece stimulated a lot of thoughtful discussion. And kids had their preconceptions challenged. Great job."
Many listeners appreciated our report about Germanys new laws governing living conditions for egg-laying hens. Maine Public Radio listener, Bob Lodato, praised Michael Muhlbergers report. He writes, "Your story was unbiased and objective, two reasons its going to be effective at arming the average persons intellect for combating this very dark aspect of the animal food industry. I have always enjoyed your show. And now I am teaming with admiration and good wishes."
