July 29, 2018

On this episode of Inquiry, we talk with PHYLLIS FENDER, wife of legendary electric guitar designer, Leo Fender. Her new book is a personal memoir with what life was like living with this legend of the guitar: LEO FENDER: THE QUIET GIANT HEARD AROUND THE WORLD.

“Fishing is as old as humanity,” writes tonight’s guest on Inquiry BRIAN FAGAN (part 1). He is an archaeological writer and emeritus professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara. His new book is a fascinating survey of how human cultures have caught and used fish and shellfish, from prehistory to the present day and around the world: FISHING: HOW THE SEA FED CIVILIZATION. Tune in and learn how the pyramids of Egypt were made possible because of fishing.
