Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders is a live one-hour weekday global cultural affairs program with a focus on the future. It is broadcast from Wisconsin Public Radio and hosted by Jean Feraca. Its mission is described on the website (http://www.wpr.org/hereonearth/aboutus.cfm).
Yesterday’s broadcast focused on Peace Corps writers Sarah Erdman (Cote d’Ivoire 1998-2000), author of Nine Hills to Nambonkaha, and Peter Hessler (China 1996-98), who wrote River Town and two other books on China.

This program is an hour long and several RPCVs ‘call in’ so the discussion goes beyond books to the Peace Corps experience, and what has happened to all of us! It is terrific show. Sarah and Peter did a great job talking about their books and their tours.
In true Peace Corps spirit, Sarah calls in to the program from Brussels where she is at the moment, and Peter was on his cell phone from downtown Cairo.
