In 1906, an earthquake destroyed scientist David Starr Jordan’s collection of newly discovered fish. His life’s work was utterly ruined. And yet he tried, very literally, to put the pieces back together.
Why Fish Don’t Exist, by Invisibilia co-creator Lulu Miller, is both Jordan’s story, as well as Miller's own journey. It’s a tale about optimism in the face of despair, of creating order amidst chaos and how we relate to inspiring, but deeply flawed, people. (Rebroadcast)
