Former Secretary of State John Kerry sat down with Host Steve Curwood to discuss his memoir, "Every Day Is Extra". An early connection with nature and the ocean helped shape Kerry's life in public service, and he talks about lessons learned from working on domestic and international policies on climate change, ocean health, and acid rain. Despite the Trump Administration's lack of action on climate change, Kerry is optimistic about the future, and says it's up to the nearly 50% of eligible citizens who don't cast votes in general elections to determine the future of the country and the world.
