White Eskimo: Knud Rasmussen’s Fearless Journey into the Heart of the Arctic

0

Knud Rasmussen achieved many pioneering and courageous accomplishments during his exploations of Greenland and the Arctic. However, that’s just the beginning of the story. Rasmussen’s motivation was to learn new cultures, folklore, and lifestyles. He had the soul of a poet, wrote about the Inuits, and earned the respect of the Inuits and European society alike. He was non-judgmental, polite, joyful, and kind. Upon completion of one of his major expeditions, he even took the time to thank his dogs. He was a remarkable man who offers lessons about civility, diplomacy, and life itself.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
