Program 748: Quirky Oslo; Last Empty Places; Herbal

Release Date: 03-23-2024


An American expat in Oslo shares some of the quirks and customs of life in his adopted home. Then, a wilderness and history author recounts what he found exploring four blank spots on the US map. And an ethnobotanist describes the healing properties of different kinds of herbs around the world — some of which might be growing in your own backyard.


  • Curtis Rojak, proprietor of Viking Biking in Oslo, Norway
  • Peter Stark, author of "The Last Empty Places" (Mountaineer Books)
  • Ethnobotanist Mimi Prunella Hernandez, author of "Herbal" (National Geographic)
