Monday | Labor Day Specials

Even if we wanted to work on Labor Day, who'd be available for a live interview? Very few people, so the JX crew takes the day off, offering up some interviews from the past to fill our time slot.

We ended up--accidentally--with a water/fire dichotomy:
At 8: we stay home and stay recent, providing a re-airing of our interview with some of the Rogue Valley-based authors ofFire Fear Hope. September 8th is the anniversary of the Almeda Drive and South Obenchain fires, and four of the authors joined us earlier this year to share memories and details of their contributions to the book.

At 9: a survey of wet spots in the dry west.

Rebecca Lawton studies oases--they do exist, and in our deserts--and provides a set of essays and photographs in the book The Oasis This Time: Living and Dying with Water in the West.

As humans suck water out of the ground, it gets harder to find a true oasis.
