National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore has spent the last two decades taking pictures of North America’s endangered animals and plants. His new book titled, Rare: Portraits of America’s Endangered Species is intended to inform, caution, and inspire people to stem the decline of Earth’s biodiversity. An exhibit of Sartore’s photographs is on display at National Geographic Museum through October. Then, philosophy in America is alive and well and slapped on the back of our cars. In less than 140 characters, the humble bumper sticker has been a platform for a national conversation about the human condition. Bob speaks with philosopher and water polo coach Jack Bowen about his new book If You Can Read This: The Philosophy of Bumper Stickers.
