Tuesday January 16th at 7pm on the Ecology Hour. Scientists are trained to remove emotion from the subjects they are studying, but can their sadness and mourning for dead and dying organisms bring a new fire to environmental activism? Emotional disconnect, which is productive for ecological thinking, limits the work ecology can do in the world and constrains conservation politics, and perhaps ecologists lives. In the next Ecology hour we’ll explore these ideas put forward in a talk given by Cleo Woelfle-Erskine, professor of environmental equity and justice at the University of Washington.

Madeline and Salomon is a French piano vocal duo with roots in jazz, but their new album transcends genre. The album is called A Woman’s Journey and was recorded in two days. The songs are a mix of originals and covers and speak clearly to the feminist outcry of today’s me too movement.  Chaneling Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, and Janis Joplin. The sound is unforgettable. Madeline and Salomon’s new album is called A Woman’s Journey, the track we’re hearing is Little Girl Blue.
