Focus, or Focus 580, was WILL Radio's flagship talk program from 1981 until 2014. David Inge was the host from 1981 until his retirement in 2012. Always engaging, the program acted as a resource for citizens to directly question politicians and candidates as well as keep up on the arts, science, health, and even the latest from well-known novelists.
The Focus archive below offers thousands of great interviews and serves as a time capsule and a great resource for researchers and those just curious about how influential people spoke of important topics as they were happening.
We most often associate mummies with ancient Egypt, but they can be found in a surprising number of places. They have much to tell us, says science journalist Heather Pringle, about medicine, religion, beauty, and even politics. The author of The Mummy Congress joins us today on Focus to talk about her worldwide travels to talk with a number of scientists who have devoted their lives to the study of mummies.
