This week’s essay is about the quaking aspen. What’s most fascinating about them is their existences as a potential “super” organism. That’s not like leaping tall buildings or inheriting a global conglomarate industry to fund rage-filled vengence crime fighting. Listen to find out how it’s different. And then after you listen to me dig deeper and into the amazing complexity of trees and their participation in a greater community of living things in a forest by listening to my favorite podcast of all time, From Tree to Shining Tree from Radiolab. Trust me, it’s utterly fascinating and I have yet to find anyone who doesn’t agree with that assessment. But listen to me first.
