Dave talks to kindred spirits on this episode of the Dot. First up is fellow broad/podcaster Kara Miller. Her Boston based show Innovation Hub from WGBH looks at the myriad ways in which human beings innovate from technology and art to core concepts of morality and being.

Meet the poets. Karla K. Morton and Alan Birkelbach with Lisa Carver on the left.

Then we introduce the brand new song Just Go Around. It's a collaboration between Poets Laureate of Texas Karla K. Morton and Alan Birkelbach joined by talented veteran songwriter/musician Lisa Carver.

The poets are touring the National Parks and penned the lyrics about preserving our sacred spaces.

Carver, formerly of Nashville where she wrote for many of the top names in country music, relocated to New Mexico in search of a more down to Earth life.

She put the words to music and delivers a moving performance.
