Thinking Aloud
Jeff Nichols: Mountain Studies
Mountains breed legends, folklore, meanings and memories. They draw geologists and naturalists, poets and tourists, photographers and hikers, scouts and scholars. Our guest today on Thinking Aloud inhabits a fairly new field of academic study—a discipline called Mountain Studies. Jeff Nichols, a social and cultural historian, is director of the Institute for Mountain Research at Westminster College in Salt Lake City. How have mountains played a part in your life? Join host Marcus Smith as he thinks back on his own "mountain stories."—Original airdate: 5/5/2017
