A WALK AROUND THE BLOCK Stoplight Secrets, Mischievous Squirrels, Manhole Mysteries & Other Stuff You See Every Day (And Know Nothing About)

by | Read by Daniel Henning

Contemporary Culture • 9.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Listeners might chuckle along as Daniel Henning gives voice to Spike Carlson's indignant feelings about a frozen water line. Henning's tone of self-deprecation might strike a chord with listeners as Carlson discovers he doesn't know how water gets to his faucets. Thus, listeners are drawn into Carlson's quest to find the stories of things he takes for granted in his everyday life. Henning brings listeners into Carlson's feelings of confidence, then embarrassment, as his recycling habits are audited. Carlson visits with recyclers, then offers tips to help listeners improve their own habits. Elsewhere, Henning becomes an energetic candidate as Carlson puts forth a tree's campaign speech, proving its value. Carlson's field trips study graffiti, pigeons, sewers, energy, and even the pavement he walks on. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2020]
