Biologist Lynn Rogers has been putting radio collars on bears and feeding them for years in Ely, Minn. He’s learned about their behavior and is aiming to become the “Jane Goodall of Black Bears.” This has caused consternation in the town among some people who worry about the habits of bears who are used to humans. They are trying to get the license for his scientific project revoked. He speaks with guest host Phoebe Judge.

Also on this edition of The Story: Writer Jo Ann Beard reads an essay from her book “The Boys of My Youth;” Booker T. Jones on the rules of the organ, the day he first stepped into Satellite Records, and just how “Green Onions” became a hit.
