Big Bright Dark
About This Show
At Big Bright Dark, we explore the questions we face, the fears that haunt us and the possibilities that rise before us in this time of great human and planetary uncertainty. We explore how these things might be reasons to create, to be in community, to be honest and vulnerable, to find the bright spots, and to become wiser versions of ourselves in the process.

The Seas of our Loss
Leah Abramson is a Vancouver-based musician who immersed herself in the world of Northern Resident Orca whales to write her recent album, and masters' thesis, Songs for a Lost Pod.
We speak with Leah about the musical inspiration in obscure research projects, about the lessons of forgiveness in unexpected places, and about the ways a family history of trauma can connect us to the animals with whom we share the seas.
Spoken word included in the episode is by Barbara Adler.
