Take a sneak peek behind the mic with Montana Public Radio's Lauren Korn when she interviews Believers author Lisa Wells for a future episode of The Write Question—MTPR's radio program and podcast "featuring authors from the American West and beyond!" Now in its sixteenth season, The Write Question has broadcast over 800 author interviews, hosted by the podcast's creator, Chérie Newman (2007-2017); her successor, writer Sarah Aronson (2017-2020); and now by the former Director of the Montana Book Festival, Lauren Korn (2020-present).

The featured title: Like most of us, Lisa Wells has spent years overwhelmed by increasingly urgent news of climate change on an apocalyptic scale. She did not need to be convinced of the stakes, but she could not find practical answers. She embarked on a pilgrimage, seeking wisdom and paths to action from outliers and visionaries, pragmatists and iconoclasts. Believers tracks through the lives of these people who are dedicated to repairing the earth and seemingly undaunted by the task ahead.
