Gregory Alan Isakov has two distinct identities: He’s a singer-songwriter and a horticulturist. When he’s not traveling the world playing music, Isakov is tending to heirloom seeds on his farm in Boulder, Colorado where he lives with his bandmates and friends. Isakov is set to perform in Flagstaff Sunday. KNAU’s Ryan Heinsius spoke with the musician-farmer and produced this audio postcard.


More than 500-cities worldwide are participating in Saturday’s March For Science. Organizers say it’s a chance to bring awareness to the “very real role” science plays in our lives. Some are concerned the march will fuel the idea that the science community is a special interest group that politicizes its work. Others see it is a chance to celebrate the integrity of research and evidence. Todd Gonzalez is an educator at Lowell Observatory, and a speaker at tomorrow’s march in Flagstaff, one of seven Arizona cities participating. Gonzalez told KNAU’s Aaron Granillo he’s not worried about looking partisan.
