Friday Special Blend
Friday December 31st, 2021 with Susan Johnston
It's the end of 2021

It's the end of 2021! I'm excited to share some of my favourite pieces from this year, both today and on socials via @JoyCuriosity. Today we'll hear new music from The Townships, a chat with Dr. Suzanne Simard, plus music by Dan Mangan, Wintersleep, Twin Flames, Shawnee, Nehiyawak and others... Suzanne Simard is a Professor of Forest Ecology at the University of British Columbia and the author of the book, Finding the Mother Tree. Suzanne is known for her work on how trees interact and communicate using below-ground fungal networks, which has led to the recognition that forests have hub trees, or Mother Trees, which are large, highly connected trees that play an important role in the flow of information and resources in a forest. Her current research investigates how these complex relationships contribute to forest resiliency, adaptability and recovery and has far-reaching implications for how to manage and heal forests from human impacts, including climate change.
