While traveling through space and through time (the moments that become days that become years that form a life), both the journey and the destination matter. This show asks interesting people how they got from Point A to Point B.
“Point A to Point B” is a weekly (or so) 10-minute segment that investigates how people travel and how they live. Each episode will debut on the radio in Ann Arbor on Friday mornings at 9-9:10am, right before Futfutfutfut Freestailo. You can hear Point A to Point B “live” on Friday mornings by tuning your radio to 88.3 FM in southeast Michigan, OR you can stream 88.3 FM from far away by visiting the WCBN-FM web site.
Episodes will be archived HERE, at lizwason.wordpress.com.
Episode 1 begins in China. The show first brings you to an elementary school near the Yangtze River, then whisks you to a college in a Tibetan monastery via the magic of radio (or the internet).
Music in this show:
1. Zhou Xuan, “Express train”
2. Zhou Xuan, “May the wind”
In the coming weeks, Point A to Point B will feature stories from (a) a retired American couple who travel the world despite physical limitations that cancer tries to impose; (b) an Englishman who has found jobs in theater, sound engineering, and train riding, but now plans to return to school for a Masters in Maritime Studies; (c) a radiologist who managed to succeed despite his father; (d+) other interesting characters I meet as I tool around North America in the motor home nicknamed “the turtle”.
P.S. Did you know that Tibetan monks study science at Emory University?
