Join us for a fascinating discussion with anthropologist Dr. Ellen Basso. She has spent many years living with, studying and writing about the Kalapalo people of central Brazil. Deep in the Amazon. Coolness. Our main focus is their language and how it helps us understand their culture. Especially interesting is their story telling tradition. I’ve posted an excerpt from one of Ellen’s recordings here. There’s also a visit from Claude, poor thing. It seems he’s lost his, well, you’ll see. There’s news, a quiz and so much more, I had to take a nap afterward!
