Love: poetry; in the time of climate change; and of art and archaeology

Love and the world we live in are themes that run through all of Diana Moxon's chats on this week's show. West Plains Missouri-based poet Dave Malone is the author of seven books of poetry, including a brand new one 'Tornado Drill', which centers on love in many guises and our journey along the babbling brook of life. On stage, Greenhouse Theatre Project are performing 'Lungs' by playwright Duncan Macmillan, which interweaves a love story with concerns about the planet and whether having a baby is the right thing to do in a world that's over-heated, over-populated and overly divisive. Director Elizabeth Braaten Palmieri and actors Anna Sundberg and Rob Glauz talk about their upcoming production. And Dan Eck, the new Director of the University of Missouri's Museum of Art and Archaeology talks about his aspirations for the museum and how it was an abandoned canning factory behind his childhood home that first got him interested in archaeology.
