Listen in as a University of British Columbia professor describes the woodsy charm of Bowen Island, just offshore from Vancouver, and a nature photographer shares what he's learned from decades of working amid the often-surprising light of the Alaskan Arctic. Then hear how Poland's capital city has shaken off its difficult 20th-century history to become a vibrant 21st-century metropolis that's well worth exploring.
