Aug. 10, 2015: Pullitzer Prize-winning author Elizabeth Kolbert, John Robinson

New Yorker writer and journalist Elizabeth Kolbert won the Pulitzer Prize this year for her book, The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History published by Henry Holt. In it, she details her journeys around the world from Albany to Patagonia, speaking with scientists about the mass extinction events taking place right now, and being caused by humans. You’ve heard of the Jurassic period? This extinction will be titled the Anthopocene.

And we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act with John Robinson, founder of Our Ability. (Original air-date July 30).
