Pulitzer Prize nominated author and biologist Dr. David Haskell is an observer of life, and life, according to him, is inextricable from the networks that exist both within it and around the living object. Join us as we travel with David to two extremes: an old-growth forest in the mountains of Tennessee, and the streets of New York City. In both places we visit a singular hub which most of us take for granted on a daily basis: a tree. One “dead” and the other is “alive”. But in both places, you will see, as we did, that both trees are robust with such a dizzying array of networks that it leads us down a path of reconsidering the very idea of life itself… including our own.
Jonathan Meiburg is a bonafide rock star. But for the past twenty years, when he isn’t touring or cutting a new album, Jonathan has been routinely drawn to the Falkland Islands and the striated caracara, a rare falcon whose brain has been found to be strangely human. He’s also one of the most creatively generous people we know. Which is why we asked him to be the composer for The Well. We hope you enjoy this in-house interview as much as we enjoyed making it.
