Dr. JOHN FRANCIS on What Grows In Silence /202

For The Wild

Science & Medicine

After bearing witness to the collision of two Standard Oil of California tankers in the San Francisco Bay, Dr. John Francis stopped using motorized vehicles, a commitment that lasted 22 years. Soon after he made this promise, he decided to take a vow of silence, which lasted for 17 years. In this episode of For The Wild, Dr. Francis shares how his journey came to be and the profound impact that silence and slowing down can have on us. In a world polluted by noise, how can we experiment with silence? What other forms of communication and Earthly rhythms arise when we do so? Dr. John Francis is a National Geographic Explorer, environmental educator, and a former United Nations Environment Program goodwill ambassador. Music by Rajna Swaminathan, Cooper-Moore, and Carter Lou McElroy.
