Program 696: For the Love of Guidebooks; The Gulf; Greatest Art In Europe

Release Date: 12-03-2022


We look at the must-see paintings, sculptures and historic edifices across Europe. University of Florida professor Jack E. Davis notes the many roles the Gulf of Mexico has played over the years, and why it's important to understand its ecology. And we'll look at the role of guidebooks, and what can make one worth reading, a hundred years after it's been published.
