Produced by Justin Maiman.

Naturalist and writer Sy Montgomery has a new book called Of Time and Turles: Mending the World, Shell by Shattered Shell. Did you know that turtles can regenerate nerve tissue? That they literally come back from the dead? (All the time.) Or that they're one of the "most exploited and abused animals in the world." Sy and I chat about slow time, patience, persistence, quiet, and of course, turtles. Host Justin Maiman, from Cairo, shares his latest inspirations on the "Ginger Radio Hour." The show features music, field recordings, performances, and interviews, primarily with people in and around the Catskill Mountains of New York live from WGXC's Acra studio.
