SORT BY Relevancy
It was a big week for the Penguins and the Pens Initiative crew. This week, Brian, Paul and Mad Chad tied up Nick Case and took over the Radio: PI Studios.
Of course, before they did that, Nick had a chance to talk with Pens beat writer, Rob Rossi of The Trib. Hear that interview and more right here on the Radio: PI Podcast Network.
The Life of Pi, was for me a fine movie. In it a young man survives a shipwreck and relates his story to a reporter who would like to write about it. He tell the reporter a fantastic story of his survival in a life boat shared for much of the time with a ferocious tiger. Investigators, seeking to understand why the ship went down do not believe the original story so Pi tells them an alternate story more believable than the first. We are never told which story might actually be factual but Pi asks the reporter which one he like better. The reporter answers the more fantsastical one! Herein lies the core of tonight's discussion. Does science, facts and perhaps truth have any role in the stories we live by or do we simply live by the stories we like best? Does the conflict between facts and wishful thinking have any role in today's political struggles?
Best-selling author Yann Martel, who penned the internationally acclaimed novel Life of Pi will be our guest. Last month the film version of the book won 4 Academy Awards, including Best Director for award-winning director Ang Lee. Yann will be chatting about his next book project, along with what it's been like to have a book receive so much Oscar praise and support.
