Radio Curious
Who was Charles Darwin and what led him to describe what we now call the theory of evolution? These curious questions are ones that I have been following since I was about ten years old. In 1978 I had the good fortune of visiting the Galapagos Islands, 600 miles west of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean. Charles Darwin visited the Galapagos Islands in 1831 for month as part of a five-year voyage around the world. There he saw birds and animals that helped him formulate some of his ideas about evolution he published The Origin of the Species, 22 years later in 1853. Since then the world, science and religion has not been the same. Now, at a time when concepts of evolution and natural selection are attacked from certain theological and political perspectives, “The Darwin Conspiracy,” a novel has been written by John Darnton, a writer and editor for the New York Times. “The Darwin Conspiracy,” although fiction, is said by John Darnton to be 90% accurate. It covers Darwin’s life and thinking before and after his publication of “The Origin of the Species.” I spoke with John Darnton from his home in New York City at the end of October 2005. He began by describing who Charles Darwin was, in his time and place. The book John Darnton recommends is “Snow,” by Orhan Pamuk.

** 'I feel like in this film, you just really haven't seen all these different images of what love looks like among black people. And so many of the conversations that are being heard in Beale Street, issues around injustice, mass incarceration, police brutality - we are still having those same conversations today.' If Beale Street Could Talk: A Conversation With Actress KiKi Layne. And what she sees as the more accurate reinvention of black images and the African American family on camera, in this James Baldwin 1974 novel to screen adaptation. While bringing to this her perspective as a millennial of color that - 'I think I came into the project with a very narrow idea of what strength looks like - and what a strong black woman looks like.' ** 'You know, it's a weird time. Because this new age, it's almost like bad behavior is permitted. It's accepted, it's us against them - we're doubling down on our stupidity.' Ernie Hudson Talks Trump, The Family Business, Bette Davis, And The California Fires. Delving into an alternate view of black family life, and just how those relationships seem to be playing out during the Trump era. A prolific African American actor who has appeared in an enormously wide range of roles from Leadbelly to The Basketball Diaries, The Crow, Ghostbusters and Grace And Frankie, Hudson revisits co-starring with Bette Davis in White Mama in 1980 - a role it seems he was less than pleased with what he had to say as an actor. And, dealing with the aftermath of the devastating California fires - while trying to set up a working phone connection to call into the show. Plus, a spoken word fusion of poetry, drama, music and film on the show - along with some vintage standup comedy, Native American style.
