Forest Woodward

Adventure writer and blogger Brendan Leonard describes himself as someone who likes running and trail running, but who probably likes ice cream more. He says he mostly avoids avalanches by not being a good enough skier to get on slopes steep enough to slide. But, he says, he loves the mountains, and he’s enthusiastic for things that bring humans together, especially in the outdoors.

Have you ever wondered what the host of Undercurrents thinks about... beyond the super-chill discussions about the music he plays? Gregg McVicar is the host and producer of Undercurrents, which airs on 170 stations throughout the country, including KSJD. KSJD's Austin Cope sat down with Gregg to learn more about how he promotes diversity in the music he plays, and whether he’s always as chill as he sounds on the air.

Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer

Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer writes short poems-- and when we say short, we mean really short. She is based in Placerville, CO, and will visit Cortez to perform some of her works on Friday, January 20th at 10am at the Cortez Public Library. She will be accompanied by cellist Kyra Kopestonsky. She talked with KSJD’s Austin Cope about what goes into her work, and how poetry can apply to the world at large.
