The Endangered Species List

Grant turns his focus closer to biology, as we look at the history and the meaning of two lists of endangered species. What does the scope of the Endangered Species Act reveal about the national imagination when compared to its predecessors? How can listing turn to recovery? What can we claim to know about the status of biological life when a majority of creatures are not assessed?

Pretty great idea! And he totally nailed it.

For contrast, here's the suggestion we had for the melody: "I'd like the theme to communicate 'You're going to learn something, and we're cute' if that makes sense.". It's pretty clear who in this situation knows something about writing songs.

Again, you can add to your podcatcher or RSS reader now to wake up with our first episode ready and waiting for you on Monday morning. Here's a second hint about the topic: We're running through the history of a place in the US, from pre-history to today.
