Joining us this week is the Executive Director of Humanities Washington, Julie Ziegler.
Humanities Washington has been around for 40 years to spark conversation and critical thinking using story as a catalyst, nurturing thoughtful and engaged communities across our state.

Don Mitchell is a novelist and essayist, and could be considered a renaissance man...he's had such a variety of experiences across a broad spectrum...having his writing made into a movie, thus straying into the Hollywood life to a spell, then to move back across country and buy a huge acreage to become a sheep farmer, and creative writing teacher at Middlebury College in Vermont.
