Saving Jungle Souls + Memory Palace - Airs Aug. 10

A sound-rich profile of Ataiba, chief of one of the last bands of nomads in the Americas, as he leaves the Bolivian jungle to live with evangelical missionaries. The story is told by Ataiba and the missionaries from starkly different points of view. Part of the Vanishing Homelands series, chronicling the dramatic changes to land and culture across the Americas. By Sandy Tolan and Nancy Postero.

We'll pair this documentary with a short feature from The Memory Palace, a new public radio effort by Los Angeles-based producer Nate DiMeo. It's super cool. Listen in.
