Chatter on Books

Aug 9, 2022

Torie, David and Jamie kick off Chatter’s last show until after Labor Day. DiCaprio, Reeves and Scorsese team up to bring COB fave Erik Larson’s book “Devil in the White City to Hulu. David wins the pop quiz on early female authors. They finally get to Alec Wilkinson’s “A Divine Language”  -- revisiting academic failure makes Torie break out in hives. Zoologist, filmmaker and brilliant writer Jackie Higgins Zooms in from the UK to discuss her wonderful “Sentient: What Animals Reveal About Our Senses.” Extraordinary and diverse animal senses reveal much about how we experience the world around us. There are peacock shrimps who see multiple colors, vampire bats that share life-saving blood and owls that see prey with their ears. It’s astounding.
