Joan Robinson's Final Bow at the Flynn [296]

1/10/13: After 18 years as a leader of the education programs at the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts, Joan Robinson is leaving behind an impressive legacy. A theatrical arts educator with a zest for life and a love of teaching, Robinson's decades of work at the Flynn have helped shape its Education Department to include programs which serve about 50,000 Vermont students each year. Her ability to integrate drama and movement into classrooms and make "Words Come Alive!" for both teachers and students is what makes Robinson's teaching style so unique.

Robinson will continue teaching drama part-time at the Integrated Arts Academy at H.O. Wheeler (a school which she helped design) and will still serve as a teaching artist for Flynn programs on occasion. Eva talks to teachers, students and Flynn staff about the impact of Robinson's work in schools across Vermont.

Music: Antara, Harbor All the Strays, "Ground Level Up"

A Photographer Duo Helps Animals Find Homes [295]

1/3/13: Sometimes a good photo can play a significant role in a shelter animal's quest for a home. Kelly Schulze, the photographer behind Mountain Dog Photography, has been volunteering weekly at the Humane Society of Chittenden County since 2009 with her husband Ian, who is known as "The Cat Whisperer." They have captured 1600+ animals' photos which have helped many of them find families. Eva visits them in action at the HSCC and takes a trip out to Monkton to meet their furry brood of 5 dogs, 6 cats and 5 chickens.

Music: The Smittens, The Coolest Thing About Love, "Baby, Don't You Know," "All the Love in the World"
