Williams departs from current forms of spoken audio and opens a realm of possibilities. Listeners will be fascinated by the stunning program, and producers should take note of the possibilities showcased in the format.
Whale Nation is a hymn to the beauty, intelligence, and majesty of the largest mammal on earth. A "green classic" read with natural resonance by its author, it rarely fails to strike a chord in the hearts of those concerned with the abuse of our planet.
