This week on First Person, Plural we interviewed travel writer Pico Iyer who was in town for the Victoria Literary Arts Festival. We really enjoyed meeting him and had a great conversation. We met him at the festival office for what was supposed to be a 20 minute meeting but instead lasted almost 45 minutes. He was generous not only with his time, but with his thoughts and feelings about travel. It was one of the better experiences we've had since starting in radio two years ago. Thanks to Tish for introducing his work to us and for brainstorming with me on the phone last Friday about what questions to ask.

Our featured rerun this week is "When Our Paths Cross" in which we discuss community-based research and emerging paradigms of research/community partnerships. (The first link will lead to sound files but these will change each week -- the second link is the permanent page for the episode.)

Stop by to read or listen -- we'd love to hear any feedback you have.
