We head to Loch Raven Reservoir, just north of Baltimore City, to revisit Nathan’s conversation with photographer David Simpson. We’ll hear about Simpson’s book The Swan at Loch Raven, and the story of how David encountered the majestic bird at the center of the book.

 

 
David Simpson will be reading from the book at the Loch Raven United Methodist Church auditorium (6622 Loch Raven Boulevard) on Tuesday, October 13. And David will be showing his new work at LivAgain Gallery and Art Bar in Cambridge on Saturday, November 14. And https://vimeo.com/122656902">you can check out some of David's aerial photography here.
 
If you’d like to explore Loch Raven yourself, check out this map of the many trails that run along the reservoir.
 

"If radio were a two-way visual medium," Nathan would see WYPR listeners every weekday between 5am and 3pm. Weekday mornings, Nathan serves up the latest Maryland news and weather (interspersed with the occasional snarky comment). Nathan also does continuity breaks through the midday, adds audio flaire to Sheilah Kast's "On The Record," infrequently fills in for Tom Hall on "Midday," does all sorts of fundraising stuff, AND "additional tasks where assigned". When not at WYPR, Nathan teaches a class on audio documentary at Towson University, and spends their spare time running around Baltimore's neighborhoods and hiking around Maryland's natural areas. Before coming to WYPR, Nathan spent 8 years at WAMU in Washington -- working every job from part-time receptionist to on-air host, gaining experience in promotions, fundraising, audience analysis, and program production. They've also served as a fundraising consultant, assisting dozens of public radio stations nationwide with on-air fundraisers. Originally from rural Pennsylvania, Nathan has called Charm City home since 2005.
