    Chasing Clean Air: The search for clean air continues! Tune in to listen to Season 1, Episode 1 of Chasing Clean Air with Donna Barnett. Brought to you by Boardwalk Yogurt in Venice Beach, Calif.
    Donna reunites with elementary school friend, Audrey, who believes Donna must chase clean air in Ypsilanti, Michigan. Find out why as we explore this quaint town on the banks of the Huron River with a creative community pushing sustainability; a scant 6 miles from the world-renowned University of Michigan and 25 miles from the world's automotive center, Detroit.
    Our honored guest will be clean air hero, Dave Strenksi, Founder of SolarYpsi. Dave and a loose group of volunteers are designing and installing solar installations around town with the intention of making Ypsilanti a "solar destination".

    Author-Actor-Host Danny Gardner on creativity LIVE on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Danny Gardner impressed audiences with his performance on the 3rd season of HBO’s Def Comedy Jam (All-Stars Vol. 12). He has enjoyed a career as an actor, director and screenwriter. He is a recent Pushcart Prize nominee for his creative non-fiction piece Forever. In an Instant., published by Literary Orphans Journal . His work has appeared in Beat to a Pulp, Out of the Gutter and Noir on the Air. His debut novel, A NEGRO AND AN OFAY. He lives in Los Angeles and originally hails from Chicago. Danny is also the one of the rotating hosts on NOIR ON THE RADIO in the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network. From Danny: " When I was first learning how things work in published fiction, I made note of behavior. I’m a multi-talent with a delivery that can easily fill the room; however, the readings I attended seemed like sober affairs and no place for a ham. An author is introduced and then reads from his or her own work, which is normally followed by a polite Q&A session. Books are signed and attendees disperse. To this old performer, it’s rather straightforward and appropriate, as it’s a lot to ask someone to take a chance on a book."

    Chasing Clean Air: The Tachi-Yokut Tribe Speaks!

    in Travel

    Donna Barnett's Chasing Clean Air Season 1, Episode 5 continues the search for clean air by sharing one of America's great untold stories!
    The Yokuts lived in paradise, peacefully co-existing with one another, the land and waterways of the San Joaquin Valley and lower Sierra Nevada foothills. For thousands of years this gentle culture of cohesive families and tribelets showed respect for nature. And then the Europeans came. How the Tachi-Yokut Native Americans lived and survived to thrive is our story. We'll learn lessons from Nature's front, the realities of Spanish missionaries and California's first governor who advocated extermination of Native Americans to today's Governor Brown nominating a Tribal Advisor to his administration. Respecting Nature's laws then & now, the Yokuts survival story & their traditions are important.
    Honored Guest: Lalo Franco, Director of Cultural and History Preservation Dept of Tachi-Yokut Tribe; one of largest tribes in the USA
