Point of Departure Speaker Q&A with David Baron

"David Baron began his career as science reporter for WBUR in Boston and went on to cover science, medicine, technology, and the environment for “All Things Considered,” “Morning Edition,” and “Weekend Edition” on NPR.

A speaker at Point of Departure on July 7-8th at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, David has felt the heat of erupting volcanoes, the chill of the South Pole, and the bite of African safari ants over the course of his radio career.

Now an author, his 2003 book The Beast in the Garden tells the story of Colorado’s first fatal mountain lion attack and won a Colorado Book Award. Here we talk with David about his early days in radio, the power of science, and petting a sleeping lion."
