Radio Curious: Long Form Interviews About Life and Ideas

 

Welcome to the 28th year of Radio Curious, now proudly part of the Library of Congress, and broadcast weekly on approximately 85 radio stations.

Here you will find over 700 half hour interviews on a curiously wide array of topics concerning life and ideas.  These programs are a gift to you from Radio Curious host and producer Barry Vogel.  He started Radio Curious in 1991, to expand the work he began in 1974 as an Attorney, Counselor and Mediator in Ukiah, California, the Mendocino County seat, located about 110 miles north of San Francisco, California.

THIS WEEK’S INTERVIEW: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.”
