On this week's show, we delve into fire, earth,
and water. Michael Winter starts us off with a story about fire. One minute, the Newfoundland author was heaving a pile of garbage into a raging incinerator and the next, well, he was going down the chute.
For the show and our guests...
We'll also hear from Hassan Ghedi Santur
with his reflections on what it means to go back into the earth -
literally, into the earth - when life is over. You can find more examples of Hassan's work here and here.
Water is part of what we are, so how do we live with its growing status as a commodity? We'll hear more from Stephen Bede Scharper, a professor of religion and environmental studies at the University of Toronto. Water runs through both of these disciplines like a river. Stephen's book is called For Earth's Sake.
