    Life On Fire [#105] Ash Runners Around the Masaya Volcano in Nicaragua, life has struggled for thousands of years to re-emerge from the ashes. Underground, vampire and other bat species have colonized the miles of tunnels created by hot flowing magma. In the crater, parakeets and vultures have made nests on cliffs exposed to toxic gases. On the flanks of this still active mountain, the vegetation has been burnt away by lava flows leaving barren stretches that are recolonized over hundreds of years. At the foot of the volcano, fields, pastures and towns have grown over the oldest lava flows. In this harsh environment, nature struggles to conquer ash and lava before the next eruption erases its efforts ... and the phoenix must rise again. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: none)

    Richard Bangs' Adventures with Purpose "Greece: Quest for the Gods" Ancient Greece produced one of humankind's most extraordinary period of cultural and intellectual transformation. From this prolific era sprang the very essence of Western civilization: poetry and architecture, the sciences and a democratic form of government. Essential to this revolution of human thought stood the powerful and revered deities of Greek mythology. They touched every aspect of life and influenced every action; yet somehow, they vanished from modern cosmology, leaving behind only temples, ruins, and a collection of strange but magnificent stories. In the seventh installment of his ADVENTURES WITH PURPOSE series of travel specials, renowned adventurer Richard Bangs embarks on a great odyssey through Greece to discover the meaning and relevance of Greek mythology today. Richard begins his time-travels in Athens, and then heads to Olympia, the birthplace of the Olympic Games. He visits the island of Ithaca, the site of the mystical oracles at Delphi, and finishes his journey at the home of the gods, Mt. Olympus. Joining Richard is author Agapi Stassinopolous and Greece native Arianna Huffington. duration 56:46   STEREO TVG

    Infinity Hall Live [#207H] Barenaked Ladies Barenaked Ladies brings a comically upbeat quality to alternative rock. After 25 years together, the band continues to win over fans with their witty, tongue-twisting lyrics and light-hearted style. Despite their years on the road, they still bring the same kinetic stage presence to their shows, complete with improvised raps, animated dancing and humorous banter between songs. Barenaked Ladies was born in the late 80s in the Toronto suburb of Scarborough, Canada when the duo of Ed Robertson and Steven Page began playing acoustic shows as the opening acts for comedy troupes. The experience proved influential for them as they learned the importance of inserting humor into their songs and performances. The group soon added Jim Creeggan on bass, his brother Andy on keyboards and Tyler Stewart on drums. In order to increase their visibility locally, the group began independently releasing audio cassettes, but 1991's Yellow Tape exceeded all their expectations. Fueled in part by a press story about Toronto's mayor banning their performance near City Hall since she believed their name to be demeaning of women, sales of Barenaked Ladies' Yellow Tape soared, making it the first independently released record to reach platinum status in Canada. The band's first full album, Gordon was released in 1992 with great success in Canada including the songs "If I Had a $1,000,000" and "Brian Wilson." The band caught on in America in 1998 with the chart-topping single "One Week" off the album, Stunt. When Stunt debuted at Number #3 on the Billboard 200 - selling more than 140,000 copies in its first week - BnL quickly upgraded their concert venues from small clubs to arenas. The band was nominated for two Grammys and won six Juno Awards. While Andy Creeggan and Steven Page have since left the group, the remaining members continue to tour and produce new music, including 2013's Grinning Streak. In their Infinity Hall performance, Barenaked Ladies brings the same fun and spontaneity that has endeared them to their fans. In addition to performing their mega-hits One Week and If I Had a $1,000,000, they also delight the crowd with a performance of their theme song from the hit television series, The Big Bang Theory. The audience received the rare opportunity to hear the band's first live performance of three new songs: "Boomerang," "Odds Are" and "Smile." And in true Barenaked Ladies form, the group busted out two improvised raps, one about the concert hall and the other based on an exuberant comment made by a concertgoer. duration 57:27   STEREO TVPG
