Writer ARLO CRAWFORD grew up on his parent’s organic farm in rural Pennsylvania but left as soon as he could. He returned to the farm as an adult to work a season and better understand what his parents had accomplished in their decades efforts to grow fruits and vegetables in a business that is always uncertain and the threat from bad weather is always present. Tune in tonight when we talk about Crawford’s book about his season on the farm: A FARM DIES ONCE A YEAR: A MEMOIR.

Professor of Biology and Director of the Hopkins Marine Station at Stanford University STEPHEN R. PALUMBI returns to Inquiry to continue talking about his new book THE EXTREME LIFE OF THE SEA. This book was co-written with his son Anthony R. Palumbi. Tonight we talk about creatures that live in the hottest parts of the oceans and others that live in the coldest. These include Pompeii Worms, Rift Shrimp and Icefish. We also talk about how the animation Little Nemo could have been a lot weirder.
