Oh, those pesky beavers, Inter­fer­ing with our prop­er­ty val­ues! Right?

Wrong. We talk with Leila Philip about beavers, a key­stone species that we need to pro­tect as we face the chal­lenges of cli­mate chaos. Her book is Beaver Land: How One Weird Rodent Made America.

So, we bring you a piece from our archives that we first aired in 2019. It’s an excerpt from our inter­view with Mimi LeMay about her mem­oir What We Will Become. It’s about how her fam­i­ly learned to come to terms with the fact that their young child was trans­gen­der — and how they came to sup­port him.
