'Worldview's' Super-Sized Eclipse Special

On today's show as we join Worldview host Jerome McDonnell broadcasting from the WBEZ terrace:

  • Find out how different cultures responded to eclipses throughout history from writer Lee Minnerly.
  • Astronomy historian, Steve Ruskin, will share how the 1878 eclipse changed science and technology forever.
  • We hear great eclipse stories from listeners like Celine Woznica. She was in Oaxaca, Mexico for the 1991 eclipse. Celine is eclipse-watching today in Missouri while pumping out tunes from her “eclipse playlist”. 
  • Plus: Live updates from special guests smack-dab in the "path of totality", like WBEZ’s Marc Garber. He’s camping out in Wyoming and comedian and science nerd, Aaron Freeman, who’s in Bloomsdale, Missouri.
