Unless otherwise noted, all Web addresses mentioned were functional as of 11-5-21. TRANSCRIPT OF AUDIO From the Cumberland Gap to the Atlantic Ocean, this is Virginia Water Radio for the week of November 8, 2021. MUSIC – ~12 sec – instrumental. That's part of “Racing the Sun,” by The Faux Paws, on that group's 2021 self-titled album, from Great Bear Records.  It opens a revised episode from November 2013, where we explore a sun-driven process that's fundamental to life on earth: photosynthesis, the process where green plants and algae make food, using the energy in sunlight to store chemical energy in the form of glucose.  Photosynthesis is also… VOICES IN SKIT - ~1 min./57 sec. REPORTER: We break into this show to bring you exclusive audio from the Virginia Tech campus, where a shadowy team of scientists are tinkering with the process underlying all life on earth.  They haven't yet revealed their possibly nefarious plans, so let's listen in... SCIENTIST 1: With this terrarium, we have a model system to test our carbon dioxide-manipulation scheme, and soon we'll be ready to control earth's fundamental food-producing process... SCIENTISTS 1 and 2: Photosynthesis! SCIENTIST 2: Are all the components of the system ready?  Green plants with chlorophyll? SCIENTIST 1: Check! SCIENTIST 2: Soil with proper nutrients? SCIENTIST 1.  Check! SCIENTIST 2. Light? SCIENTIST 1.  Check! SCIENTIST 2.  Water? SCIENTIST 1.  Check! SCIENTIST 2.  Air with CO2? SCIENTIST 1.  CO2? SCIENTIST 2.  That's carbon dioxide! SCIENTIST 1.  Oh...right...I mean, check! SCIENTIST 2.  Let the photosynthesis start!  Engage monitoring device! SCIENTIST 1.  CO2 taken in from the air...water and nutrients being absorbed through roots...light falling on leaves.  All systems go!  Light energy is driving CO2 and water to combine and form glucose, the chemical-energy form, while releasing oxygen. SCIENTIST 2.  Apply the CO2 inhibitor! SCIENTIST 1.  Lid applied!  CO2 source blocked...system CO2 levels dropping rapidly...plants responding as expected, using up available CO2. SCIENTIST 2.  Reverse manipulation!  Apply the CO2 increaser! SCIENTIST 1. Lid removed!  CO2 added...plants responding.  Wait, they're responding too fast!  They're growing beyond the walls!  One has me...aieeeeeeee! SCIENTIST 2.  Now it's got me, too!  Noooooooo..... REPORTER: Well, this might be a good time for us to return to our regular show.  Back to you.... END VOICES IN SKIT Unlike this skit, with its far-fetched human-eating plants, there's nothing make-believe about Earth life's reliance on photosynthesis using sunlight, chlorophyll, nutrients, water, and carbon dioxide to make food.  Moreover, photosynthesis is a fundamental aspect of understanding and responding to climate change.  Photosynthesis millions of years ago created the hydrocarbon compounds that constitute today's fossil fuels, and photosynthesis now—absorbing and storing some of the carbon dioxide released in fossil fuel burning—has an important role in reducing Earth's carbon dioxide levels, warming, and other climate-change impacts.  For example, the capacity for photosynthesizing trees to take up atmospheric carbon dioxide was one aspect of the “Declaration on Forests and Land Use” at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties, or COP26, in Glasgow, Scotland, from October 31 to November 12, 2021. Thanks to Eli Heilker and John Kidd for participating in this episode.  Thanks also to Andrew VanNorstrand for permission to use part of “Racing the Sun.”  We close with another musical selection appropriate for the climate challenges facing the COP26 meeting and all of us.  Here's about 25 seconds of “On a Ship,” by Blacksburg, Va., musician Kat Mills. MUSIC - ~ 24 sec – Lyrics: “We are riding on a ship,” then instrumental. SHIP'S BELL Virginia Water Radio is produced by the Virginia Water Resources Research Center, part of Virginia Tech's College of Natural Resources and Environment.  For more Virginia water sounds, music, or information, visit us online at virginiawaterradio.org, or call the Water Center at (540) 231-5624.  Thanks to Stewart Scales for his banjo version of Cripple Creek to open and close this show.  In Blacksburg, I'm Alan Raflo, thanking you for listening, and wishing you health, wisdom, and good water.

Julian Nott came to music relatively late. After studying Music and Politics and Economics at Oxford University, he worked for a management consultancy firm in the City for a number of  years. Finding that not entirely to his liking, he enrolled in the UK's National Film And Television School, funding his studies by simultaneously working freelance for the Economist Publications. After film school, Julian worked as an independent documentary film producer, making films for Channel Four Television, Arte Channel and WGBH Boston. Along the way he qualified as a (non-practising) barrister. At film school, Julian met the animator Nick Park, writing the music for his early Wallace and Gromit films. When these films became such a huge success, the offers starting come in and Julian switched to film scoring full time. His work still includes much animation (“Wallace and Gromit in the The Curse of the Wererabbit”, “Peppa Pig”, “Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom”, “The Hungry Caterpillar”). Feature films credits include “The Decoy Bride”, “My Mother's Courage”, “Heavy Petting” and “A Man Of No Importance”. On television, credits include all four series of the BBC's popular “Lark Rise to Candleford”, ITV's "The Vice" and David Jason's comedy “The Royal Bodyguard”.Julian Nott's websiteSUPPORT THIS PODCASTPatreonDonorboxORDER SAMUEL ANDREYEV'S NEWEST RELEASEIridescent NotationLINKSYouTube channelOfficial WebsiteTwitterInstagramEdition Impronta, publisher of Samuel Andreyev's scoresEPISODE CREDITSPodcast artwork photograph © 2019 Philippe StirnweissSupport the show (http://www.patreon.com/samuelandreyev)

MUSIC - ~11 sec – instrumental This week, we feature a Blacksburg, Va., musician’s song that sets the stage for thinking about significant water resources issues.  Have a listen for about 45 more seconds. MUSIC - ~48 sec – Lyrics: Whatcha gonna do when the river runs dry? When there’s no more water in your well? You won’t know when to give it that one last try; You won’t be warned before the final bell. [I'm] takin’ it on the way, takin’ it on the way. Whatcha gonna do when the river runs dry?” You’ve been listening to part of “River Runs Dry,” by Kat Mills, accompanied by Rachel Handman, on the 2003 album “Long Time.”  As noted in a previous Virginia Water Radio episode featuring this music, the river in the song symbolizes the inspirations and sources of creativity on which Ms. Mills depends in her life and work.  But the song’s questions about what to do if the river or well goes dry provide inspiration for considering the challenges of actual water.  For example, water is a factor in three of the top worldwide risks over the next ten years cited in the non-partisan World Economic Forum’s “Global Risks Report” for 2020.  Those three are a water-availability crisis, climate change, and extreme weather. With U.S. national elections fast approaching, this Labor Day week offers a good time to consider some national and global water resources challenges awaiting the next president, Congress, and other federal officials.  If Virginia Water Radio could interview the presidential candidates, here are eight questions we’d ask, generated from various sources. 1. What water bodies should be regulated as part of the Waters of the United States under the federal Clean Water Act? 2. What are your plans for addressing the nation’s water-related infrastructure needs? 3. What should the federal government do regarding groundwater quantity and quality issues around the country? 4. What’s needed for all citizens to have access to adequate, safe drinking water? 5. What are your positions on climate change? And 6. What international water issues concern you? We end this episode with a question for you listeners: how, if at all, does water factor into your voting decisions this fall? Thanks to Kat Mills for permission to use this week’s music, and we close with about 25 more seconds of “River Runs Dry.” MUSIC - ~26 sec – Lyrics: “Whatcha gonna do when the river runs dry?

In this conversation, Dr. Bob talks with Howard Husock, author of the book "Who Killed Civil Society? The Rise of Big Government and Decline of Bourgeois Norms." They talk about many topics from Howard's book including how government can provide a financial safety net for citizens, but it cannot effectively create or promote healthy norms. Nor should it try. That formative work is best done by civil society. They also discuss how children are more likely to thrive in stable, two parent homes. This intellectual discussion is very interesting, informative and a must listen episode. Enjoy! Howard Husock is a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, where he served as vice president for research and publications from 2006-2019. He also directs the Institute's Tocqueville Project, which includes the annual Civil Society Awards and the Civil Society Fellows Program. A City Journal contributing editor, he is the author of Who Killed Civil Society? The Rise of Big Government and Decline of Bourgeois Norms (September 2019), Philanthropy Under Fire (2013) and The Trillion-Dollar Housing Mistake: The Failure of American Housing Policy (2003). From 1987 through 2006, Husock was director of case studies in public policy and management at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government, where he was also a fellow at the Hauser Center on Nonprofit Organizations and an adjunct lecturer in public management. ​His writing has appeared in the Wall Street Journal, National Affairs, New York Times, New York Times Magazine, Society, Chronicle of Philanthropy, Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, Philanthropy, The Wilson Quarterly, and Public Interest​. Husock has written widely on U.S. housing policy, including Repairing the Ladder: Toward a New Housing Policy Paradigm (1996). A former broadcast journalist and documentary filmmaker for WGBH Boston, his work there won three Emmy Awards, including a National News and Documentary Emmy (1982). Husock serves on the board of directors of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. He holds a B.A. from Boston University's School of Public Communication and was a 1981–82 mid-career fellow at Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.

This week’s guest is Princess Daazhraii Johnson, creative producer for the new PBS KIDS show "Molly of Denali." This episode explores her role in making the animated children’s program a reality and discusses the representation of Alaska Native peoples and cultures in film. “When WGBH first reached out about the project MOLLY OF DENALI, I was so excited,” said Johnson. “I immediately thought of myself as a little girl and what a show like this would have meant to me.” Johnson is Neets’aii Gwich’in and her family is from Arctic Village, Alaska. Princess received a B.A. in International Relations from The George Washington University and a Masters in Education at the University of Alaska Anchorage with a focus on Environmental and Science Education. "Molly of Denali" is the first nationally distributed children’s series to feature a Native American lead character, Molly Mabray, a feisty and resourceful 10-year-old Gwich’in/Koyukon/Dena’ina Athabascan girl. The episodes weave together literacy skills with Alaska Native values, such as respecting others, sharing what you have and honoring your elders, while showcasing contemporary aspects of rural life. WGBH Boston developed "Molly of Denali" with a group of Alaska Native advisors, including Elders, who advise on many aspects of the show, including culture and languages. The UA College Savings Plan is a major sponsor of the new series and its educational mission.

In 2004, the Financial Times critic Alastair Macaulay argued that the role of Othello had been “diminished” by the late twentieth century convention of having only black actors play the part. The threshold for Macaulay had been what he perceived to be another poor performance as Othello. Yet since Paul Robeson’s appearance as Othello at the Savoy Theatre in 1930, language has been a major weapon of critics and journalists opposing ethnic minority performers’ appearances in Shakespearean theatre. This paper examines critical responses by arts journalists and critics to these performances, helping to contextualize discriminatory casting patterns in contemporary theatre as part of a larger discourse guided by the media. Bio: Dr. Jami Rogers trained at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and holds an MA and a PhD from the Shakespeare Institute, the University of Birmingham. Prior to obtaining her PhD Jami spent 10 years working for PBS, the American public service broadcast television network, first at its headquarters in Washington, D.C. and then for 8 years at WGBH/Boston working on Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery!, where awards included a Primetime Emmy from the Academy of Arts and Television Sciences. Most recently she was Research Assistant on the AHRC-funded Multicultural Shakespeare project at the University of Warwick, where she was the lead researcher on the British Black and Asian Shakespeare Performance Database. She was Visiting Lecturer at the University of Wolverhampton in the Drama Department and has taught at the Universities of Birmingham, Warwick and the British American Drama Academy. Jami has lectured on Shakespeare and American drama at the National Theatre in London and works regularly with director David Thacker at the Octagon Theatre, Bolton.

Nadine Helstroffer is one of dance's treasures--a poetic, luminous performer whose choreography reflects her insight into life, nature and spirituality. She has been a good friend for many years, and I'm pleased to present an interview we recorded in the summer of 2007 in the home she shares with filmmaker John Bush. Among other things, Nadine and I talked about their experiences filming in Tibet, and I urge you to follow the links for more information about all of John and Nadine's projects. GUEST BIO Nadine Helstroffer, French-born, has been presenting her choreography in the U.S., Canada and France since 1981. Her work includes “Clock Lock,” “Threshold” and “Earthbound.” She has taught dance and directed workshops in France, Korea and the U.S. Since 1998 she has been leading the BodyResonance Workshop which explores the link between meditation and movement. She has been presenting her workshop at the Zen Center of NYC, the New School University, New York Insight Meditation Society and Bowling Green State University. Ms. Helstroffer obtained a doctorate in philosophy under the direction of Daniel Charles of the Sorbonne (Subject: An Innovative Approach to Dance) at Nanterre University/Paris-X, France, in 1980. Her academic interests in Eastern philosophies and her exposure to the East through her dance career have guided her toward an integration of Eastern philosophies and Western movements. She collaborated with composers Yas Jaz from Sankai Juku Company, Philip Fraser (devotee of Shri Shri Ravi Shankar) and David Hykes, founder of the Harmonic Choir. In New York, the Rubin Museum of Art commissioned her 30-minute solo piece, “Absence Presence,” performed in the gallery of the exhibition "Handprints and Footprints of Buddhist Art" in 2005 and filmed by John Bush. She was also invited by the museum to dance her choreography as part of a performance by Hykes's Harmonic Choir. She has worked in collaboration with filmmaker John Bush on a 40-minute dance film-- “Shimmer”--shot entirely outdoors in New York City. An excerpt--"Portal"--has been screened at Galapagos Art Space, curated by the experimental film group Ocularis, and has had a special screening at the 2006 High Falls Film Festival. “Vajra Realm,” a dance pilgrimage with Nadine Helstroffer filmed in Central Tibet, was released in January 2007 as a special feature on the DVD “Vajra Sky Over Tibet,” the third film of the “Yatra Trilogy” by John Bush.
