Filmmaker and teacher SHAWN CAREY returns to Inquiry to talk about Migration Productions new dynamic film EPIC JOURNEYS. Shorebirds make dramatic migratory journeys every year, many species traveling from their breeding grounds in northern Canada and Alaska all the way south to South America and back again. Along the way, they fuel they fuel their efforts by feeding in very specific areas along the eastern seaboard. Epic Journeys tells the story of three species through dramatic and beautiful footage of the birds and interviews with conservationists and scientists studying these birds.

Edith Piaf was one of the great singers and song interpreters of the twentieth century. Yet her life reads like a latter day version of Les Miserables. Described as a Gallic fusion of Billie Holiday and Judy Garland, my guest tonight describes her as more feral than that. She rose above an impoverished and violent childhood and survived the Nazi occupation of France to become a world renown sensation. Tonight, on Inquiry, we talk with teacher, writer and biographer CAROLYN BURKE about her wonderful new biography NO REGRETS: THE
LIFE OF EDITH PIAF
