05:00 - Exploring the Cultural Geography of the Northwest
When visitors arrive on Bainbridge Island's IslandWood campus, they are oriented to the "ABC's of the environment," or the abiotic, biotic and cultural forces that work together to create an ecosystem. Their cultural history films explore the diversity of people who have interacted with the land IslandWood now inhabits. As viewers explore their own cultural identities, they learn a sense of stewardship for others and the world in which they live. Dave Beck talks with IslandWood film producer, Katie Jennings.

20:00 - Women Empowered
Gender inequality is a poison to the human condition. Poverty, AIDS and infant mortality rates are all tied to the power that women hold in a society. Seattle photographer Phil Borges traveled the globe, documenting efforts by the relief organization CARE for the new book, Women Empowered. In an archive from April 26th, 2007, he offers a world view of gender equality that may change our understanding of local problems.

34:00 - Sounds Familiar: 'O Sole Mio'
Amanda Wilde, host of the Swing Years and Beyond, brings us another familiar song we didn't know we knew so well.
