Creativity is intrinsic to human nature, but how it manifests is unique to each individual. Jane Dreeben explores the different ways people create and the paths they took to get there. Her new book is The Urge to Create: 50 Vineyard Portraits.  The subjects were chosen for the persistence and passion they bring to their work.  Mindy Todd speaks to Jane Dreeben in our Woods Hole studios.

Author and writer Jennifer Trainer Thompson joins Mindy Todd to discuss her new book Fresh Fish.  It’s described as a “fearless guide to grilling, shucking, searing, and roasting seafood."

In 1976, nine members of the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe were arrested after police raided a gathering of tribal members participating in an evening drumming session.  The police were in riot gear using mace and force to bring in the unarmed Wampanoag.
