  Frank Lenz was a young man who left his Pittsburgh home in 1892 intending to cycle around the world on what was then a new-fangled "pneumatic safety" bike, a prototype of the modern bicycle. But Lenz mysteriously disappeared in Turkey two years into his epic journey. Mark Perzel talked with author David Herlihy about his book on Frank Lenz, The Lost Cyclist: The Epic Tale of an American Adventurer and His Mysterious Disappearance.

Thane Maynard talks about wetlands and the critical need for their restoration

  There was a time not long ago when wetland areas were thought of as useless, or worse, breeding grounds for disease.
