This American Life does mapping

One of my favorite shows ever, This American Life does mapping on this week's show. This weeks show has 5 parts and looks at mapping the world by the 5 senses. North Carolina artist, cartographer and author Denis Wood joins Ira Glass in Act I. Ira gives an interesting perspective to mapping from a non-mapping person (if there is such a person these days). I'm not sure I agree with everything he says but interesting none-the-less.

Denis is author of The Power of Maps and co-author of Making Maps: A Visual Guide to Map Design for GIS (occasionally used in our GIS curriculum).

The following link will take you directly to this weeks podcast - Mapping.
