Kojo speaks with "Speak No Evil" novelist and D.C. native Uzodinma Iweala about his second novel and how his local upbringing affects his storytelling.
They’re stories that might seem like odd local examples of environmental change: ants devouring the jungles of Venezuela and elk destroying the landscape of U.S. national parks. But scientists say these phenomena are not random — they’re being driven by the disappearance of predators from many corners of the world. Join Kojo as we talk about the decline of meat-eating beasts — and hear about controversial ideas for restoring their numbers in the wild.
