A few years ago, radiomaker Fil Corbitt found a handsaw in the mountains and built a small desk out in the woods. High in the Sierra Nevada, flanked by an aspen grove and a lodgepole pine stand, this is where Fil makes “The Wind”, a critically acclaimed podcast that investigates our relationship to place through sound. The Wind has aired nationally and internationally on 99% Invisible, Snap Judgement, and BBC’s Shortcuts and a short-form version of their work “Postcards from The Wind” airs locally every thursday morning on KUNR. The show has featured interviews with John Luther Adams, buZ blurr, Jessica Bruder (Nomadland), Gary Farmer, Dom Flemons, and Joe Lally (Fugazi), among many others. After a tour in 2023, which included performances in Boise, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Glasgow and a sold-out show in New York City, Fil will be in Carson City to perform their unique sound-driven performance.

An award-winning nature writer and humorist, Michael Branch is the author of more than 300 essays, which have appeared in venues including CNN, the San Francisco ChronicleSlateOutsidePacific Standard, Huffington Post, Bustle, Utne ReaderOrionEcotone, National Parks, The Scientist, High Country News, and Terrain.org. Mike’s ten books include his trilogy of place-based humor writing from the Great Basin Desert: Raising WildRants from the Hill, and How to Cuss in Western. In the spirit of Mark Twain’s Roughing It, this session will use storytelling to explore the Great Basin Desert and the humor our engagement with this wild landscape often inspires. After hearing Mike’s stories you’ll likely agree with Huck Finn that “There was things which he stretched, but mainly he told the truth.”
