An intimate, wide-ranging conversation between Anna Badkhen and Barry Lopez about writing, and the role the write plays as a global citizen. Anna Badkhen’s immersive investigations of the world’s inequities have yielded six books of literary nonfiction, most recently Fisherman’s Blues. Barry Lopez is one of American’s great thinkers and most humane voices. His latest book is Horizon, which takes the reader from pole to pole searching for meaning and purpose in a broken world.
