15. Art Connects Us to Ourselves and Others

In episode 15 of Small Town Big Stories, Jill talks with Mark Pearce about how all forms of art connect us to ourselves and others and the importance of respecting the environment by making small, daily choices to protect our resources.  They also discuss poetry, books, movies and more!  A correction for the episode: Mark let me know that when he mentions the number of plastic straws that are sent to dumps he meant to say 5-hundred million straws per day. (500,000,000). Or, about 1.54 straws per each US citizen.
