Rain Taxi Review of Watershed

by Elizabeth Bailey

Lakeland PBS Interview

Following a lively reading and discussion in Brainerd in July, 2022, Hanky Hazelton, a reporter from Lakeland public TV spoke with me about climate and justice.

Creative Nursing Planetary Health Issue Launch

After a group of former students and I had an article accepted for the Planetary Health Issue of Creative Nursing, we were asked to discuss that article with others who had also written articles for that journal. Listen in to this YouTube recording of that launch. You’ll hear some inspiring stories of health support by people who understand that all life – animal and plant and community – is one. Individual health is dependent on the health of all.

New Books Network Podcast

Matthew Brown and I talked together about Watershed for his New Books Network podcast. Our conversation expanded into a consideration of all our watersheds. Matt’s a super-insightful reader and, thus, a delightful interviewer. In the course of our conversation, he introduced me to the watersheds of Wyoming where he lives.

Podcast for Educators (and everyone else) on SPOTIFY or IHEARTRADIO

For an easy-to-listen-to, accessible discussion, click one of the links above. In the podcast, I talk with Lena Jones (political science professor at Minneapolis College) and Teddie Potter (clinical director of the School of Nursing at the University of Minnesota) about topics that Watershed addresses. Some who have listened remarked that the episode gives a sense of interconnectedness and wholeness, that offers a container for grief and leads to profound hope. Listen and then, if you wish to – share the podcast with others and your own stories and thoughts with me.
