PRI’s The Next Big Thing: From Darkness Into Light, Show #529

We meet two nuns who have chosen the traveling circus as their ministry, and a woman who has made human hair the object of her life’s work. Also, archival sounds from Coney Island and from Alan Lomax’s unfinished Global Jukebox project featuring Gideon D’Arcangelo and Michael Del Rio. And stories from families who have chosen to bury their own dead. Listen to the show on WNYC here.
