Ezra has spent many years flying small planes in various countries bringing public health services to remote and isolated villages. Now he’s building Greenstand, a platform that fights climate change and extreme poverty by using technology to employ people to plant and steward forests. If you see him on the street, he might be the guy with a mischievous grin and a perfect snowball.
Raised on the western slope of the Colorado Rockies, Mandi spent her youth adventuring and fundraising with her local Boy Scout Troop 223. As a young adult, she moved around the state until finally she made a great leap of faith and for the price of a one-way ticket bought a new life. She now resides in Seward with her dog ‘the goodest boy’ Woodrow and her fat cat Buster Beans Keaton.
Asteroids, as the dinosaurs found out, can have big effects on life on Earth. Sixty-five million years ago, an asteroid crashed into the Yucatán. The impact caused apocalyptic tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. Grit and ash blotted out the sun. It wiped out species that had roamed the Earth for millions of years. Yet asteroid hits also were critical to the origins of life on Earth. Asteroids may well have been the bringers of water, of carbon, even of amino acids — the building blocks of life. That’s a big reason why NASA is on a mission to Bennu. This asteroid is like an ancient fossil of our solar system — largely unchanged since the time the planets formed. In December, after a billion-mile journey, NASA’s Osiris-Rex mission arrives at Bennu. And, for the first time, a spacecraft will try to actually bring back an asteroid sample to Earth. On this episode of Orbital Path, Dr. Michelle Thaller sits down with Dr. Amy Simon — a senior scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, and a key player on the Osiris-Rex mission. Michelle and Amy talk about the mission, Amy’s work to probe the origins of the solar system, and one other thing: The remote chance that Bennu, someday, could collide with Earth. Orbital Path is produced by David Schulman. Our editor is Andrea Mustain. Production oversight by John Barth and Genevieve Sponsler. Support for Orbital Path is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, enhancing public understanding of science, technology, and economic performance. For more about the show, visit orbital.prx.org
Michiyo has been living in Alaska for 32 years, and this is her home now. She feels lucky to live in Alaska. Being Japanese, she loves the “all you can eat salmon”, if she can catch it.
Accused of being a workaholic and/or hustler, Elana works two jobs, one in public health where she attempts to prevent the negatives of using substances, and the other teaching students/being a student herself about public health promotion. When she’s not doing that, you’ll find her volunteering for various causes, Tindering, or being outside as much as possible. Her favorite quote is: “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” by Oscar Wilde, a quote that continuously reminds her to seize the day.
Zoey skips when she is happy, which is most of the time. She’s also exceptionally skilled in the art of trying.

America’s unwillingness to assess the ugly truth about systemic inequality has created a perpetual sinkhole of denial. A reality that existed long before Trump’s presidency. It’s AMERICA’s Legacy. On this edition, we hear from Dr. Michael Eric Dyson, professor of Sociology at Georgetown University, one of the nation’s most prominent public intellectuals, a frequent contributor to the New York Times, and an editor of The New Republic. Dr. Dyson recently penned, “What Truth Sounds Like: RFK, James Baldwin, and Our Unfinished Conversation About Race in America.” Today’s conversation with Professor Dyson explores race and truth in the age of Trump.
Yotam Ottolenghi, Israeli-born chef and writer, at 5x15. He takes us on a fascinating journey into the formative experiences that have inspired the food he cooks. And, through a series of anecdotes, he explores the ways food and politics are linked. Having completed a Master's degree in philosophy and literature, he moved to London in 1997 to study at Le Cordon Bleu cookery school. He then went on to work as an assistant pastry chef at Capital, before working at Kensington Place, Launceston Place, Maison Blanc and Baker and Spice. In 2002, together with Samim Tamimi, he founded his own eponymous chain of restaurants and food shops, with branches in Notting Hill, Islington, Belgravia and Kensington. He is the author of three best-selling cookery books, and is interested in the relationship between food and politics, both in London and Jerusalem. Further restaurants include Nopi and Rovi. Books include: Simple, Plenty and Jerusalem. Recorded at The Tabernacle in London in May 2010. 5x15 brings together five outstanding individuals to tell of their lives, passions and inspirations.

#KeeperoftheDay No. 36 "Hi Kitchen Sisters. My name is Lindsay Smith Zrull and I'm a curator of astronomical photographs here at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. We have over 500,000 glass plate photographs of the night sky that were taken between 1885 and 1992...But the thing that's the most amazing at least in my opinion is that during the late 1800s and early 1900s we had a team of women who studied these stars that were preserved on the glass and they made revolutionary discoveries in the field of astronomy. This team collectively was known as the Harvard Women Computers..."

Activists in Houston were galvanized by events in Ferguson in 2014 following the death of Michael Brown. First, they took to the streets in protest. Then they started organizing. Not long after, they found a kindred spirit in the most unlikely person: a candidate for the DA office. 70 Million reporter, Ruxandra Guidi, chronicles how activists and reformers are succeeding in cutting the jail population, diverting drug arrests, and increasing accountability for local police.
