Back from the fund drive, and tonight at 8 PM airing the full show with my guest Peter Heller. Poet, adventure journalist, kayaker and eco-warrior, he's racked up impressive credentials as a writer and activist. Yet Peter Heller still answered the seemingly unavoidable call to make the most of a mid-life crisis: to learn how to surf at age fifty and, simultaneously, seriously court a woman as a possible life companion. You might have seen Peter Heller’s byline in Outside, National Geographic Adventure or read his previous work, The Whale Warriors, Hell or High Water, Set Free in China or heard his commentaries on NPR. After reading Kook: What Surfing Taught Me About Love, Life, and Catching the Perfect Wave, you'll know him that much better in this vulnerable, exciting and completely satisfying memoir-meets-eco group help (not selfish "self-help") guide to finding his own life in the waves and in the lives of others, while working for life on our planet. Listen live on the radio or on your computer. Or anytime via station archives, free and downloadable for 90 days.
