Talk of Alaska: Beauty and the Geek – Climate Edition


A modern playwright has an ancient way to get politicians to focus on climate warming — at least male politicians, that is. Playwright and performer Kathryn Blume joins us to talk about her one-woman play — The Boycott. (Does the name Lysistrata mean anything to you?)

We’re tracking climate changes and taking action this week on Talk of Alaska.
