Holding It Down: The Poet And The Predator [8.23.2013]

When Lynn Hill retired from operating Predator drones for the U.S. Air Force, she closed that chapter of her life – until she started writing poetry about having one foot in the war and one foot at home. Also in this show: a Vietnam veteran turned Franciscan friar talks about war and the long journey of finding a place to work and feel at ease.


"Jism" and "Show Me Everything" by Tindersticks; "Messiah: Amen" by GF Handel
