The Long Loneliness
Americans havenâ€™t always loved whales and dolphins. In the 1950s, the average American thought of whales as the floating raw materials for margarine, animal feed, and fertilizerâ€”if they thought about whales at all. But twenty-five years later, things had changed for cetaceans in a big way. Whales had become the poster-animal for a new environmental movement, and cries of â€œsave the whales!â€ echoed from the halls of government to the whaling grounds of the Pacific. What happened? Annie and Elah meet the unconventional scientists who forever changed our view of whales by making the case that a series of surreal bleats and moans were â€œsong.â€ GUESTS D. Graham Burnett, professor of history, Princeton University, author, The Sounding of the Whale: Science and Cetaceans in the 20th Century Scott McVay, former executive director, Robert Sterling Clark Foundation, Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, author, Surprise Encounters Roger Payne, biologist, author, Among Whales Sheri Wells-Jensen, associate professor of linguistics, Bowling Green State University FOOTNOTES Read Roger and Scottâ€™s landmark Science paper on whale song. (The paper includes great pics of the spectrograms Scott and Roger analyzed.) Listen to Rogerâ€™s record, Songs of the Humpback Whale. Listen to more humpback whale recordings (and dolphin tapes too!) courtesy of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Read D. Graham Burnettâ€™s essay on John C. Lilly in Orion. (Itâ€™s a great teaser for the rest of his book.) Read a paper Dr. Lilly published in Science, based in part on Scott McVayâ€™s work with Elvar the dolphin. Read the essay that inspired Scott: Loren Eiseleyâ€™s â€œThe Long Loneliness: Man and Porpoise: Two Solitary Destiniesâ€ CREDITS This episode of Undiscovered was produced by Elah Feder and Annie Minoff Â Our senior editor is Christopher Intagliata, our composer is Daniel Peterschmidt, and our intern is Kaitlyn Schwalje.
