On today’s show World Footprints explores the plight of the endangered Panther, we chat with one of the rising IZOD Indycar stars Simona de Silvestro, and we also view Catholicism through the lens with Father Robert Barron. As a special bonus, we added some sound bytes and interviews from the DC Stop Modern Slavery walk to end human trafficking.
Panthers once roamed the entire southeastern United States; from Florida to South Carolina and Louisiana. However, the panther was added to the Endangered Species List in 1967 and today the remaining population is isolated in South Florida.
Simona de Silvestro is one of a handful of female Indycar racers and she is one of the most prominent racecar drivers on the track. We spoke to Simona shortly before the crash that claimed the life of Dan Wheldon.
Just in time before Easter we will chat with Father Robert Barron's about his Catholicism documentary. The documentary illustrates the history and treasures of a global religion shared by more than one billion people around the world by exploring art, architecture, literature, music and all the riches of the Catholic tradition.
