George Schaller, Honee Hess & O'Malley

Sunday, March 31, 2013 - 9:00pm

Tonight on Inquiry we talk with GEORGE B. SCHALLER. He has spent more than half a century studying wildlife in over twenty countries. He has helped protect some of the planets most endangered and iconic animals including the mountain gorillas, tigers, giant pandas, jaguars and the snow leopard. Tonight George Schaller talks about his new book TIBET WILD: A NATURALIST’S JOURNEYS ON THE ROOF OF THE WORLD.

Christopher Cerf & Moises Velasquez Manoff

Sunday, March 24, 2013 - 9:00pm

Why should you stay clear of lemon wedges in your drinks (and limes, cherries and olives for that matter)? Did you know that drinking from a straw will give you marionette lines? Not only should you not read on the toilet, you shouldn’t sit at all. Don’t get us started on the dangers of Santa Claus and romance novels. These are just a few of the sobering warnings to be found in the ENCYCLOPEDIA PARANOIACA: THE INDESPENSABLE GUIDE TO EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING YOU SHOULD BE AFRAID OF OR WORRIED ABOUT.

David George Haskell & John Galluzzo

Sunday, March 17, 2013 - 9:00pm

Using a Tibetan Mandela as an inspiration, DAVID GEORGE HASKELL, Professor of Biology at the University of the South, trekked deep into some old growth forest and drew a small circle on the forest floor only a meter in area. Could repeated close observations of this small circle and all it’s denizens give insights into how the larger forest functioned?

Sharon Preston-Folta & Doug Fine

Sunday, March 10, 2013 - 9:00pm

Tonight on Inquiry we talk with SHARON PRESTON-FOLTA, author, marketing media planner, chef and Louis Armstrong’s daughter. Sharon is his only child. But she had to keep this secret because public knowledge of her mother’s twenty year-long affair with the famous jazz musician could have ruined his career. So Sharon grew up leading a double life: rejoicing in her fathers presence and even touring with him and his band yet having to keep her father’s identity secret from friends and school mates.

Cannonball Adderly Tribute with Greg Hopkins Quintet

Julian "Cannonball" Adderly has left a huge impact on jazz music today. Cannonball's slick, blues-inspired alto sax playing hits like lightning. Adderly's alto sax made a perfect contrast to Coltrane's tenor in the famous Miles Davis Sextet.

Cannonball's music took on a strong R&B vibe with his own bands and collaborations with greats like Charles LLoyd, Joe Zawinul, and Yuseff Latief.
