[Reposted with correct audio link -LU] In episode #19, Leif interviews his own father, Eric Utne, the founder of Utne Reader, about Eric’s new project, the Earth Corps for Global Service. In the March/April issue of Utne, he and Carol Bellamy, a former director of the Peace Corps and UNICEF, penned an essay titled “Ask What You Can Do for Your Planet?” in which they call for the creation of a new Peace Corps for the whole Earth. And music reviewer Keith Goetzman takes us to Belize for a taste of the funky guitar and vocal stylings of Andy Palacio, an Afro-Caribbean musician working to preserve his traditional Garifuna culture.
