Program 434: New Northwest Passage; Dispatches from Pluto, Mississippi; More Serendipity

Release Date: 02-13-2016


Novelist Kathleen Winter describes how her Northwest Passage voyage through the Canadian Arctic taught her to view the world in a new light. Then journalist Richard Grant tells of what happened to his world view (and dinner menus) when he left the bustle of Manhattan to buy an old farmhouse in the Mississippi Delta. And listeners share memorable tales of the people they've met on overseas travels.
