WNUR Conference of the Birds, 2013-09-10

“Conference of the Birds” is my weekly radio program on WNUR-FM. It airs on Tuesdays from 5-7:30 am Chicago time (UTC-5). And, of course, when technology cooperates, you can just come here for the archives. You can subscribe to the podcast with this URL (click here to subscribe in iTunes).

I put together a bit of a Colombian feature at the start of the show since I have some friends who are going to be in Bogotá this week. From there it just meanders all over the place.

Enjoy!
