Featured Program
Out of Eden Walk
National Geographic Fellow Paul Salopek is walking the pathways of the first humans who migrated out of Africa in the Stone Age and made the Earth ours. His 21,000-mile odyssey is a decade-long experiment in slow journalism as he covers the major stories of our time—from climate change to technological innovation, from mass migration to cultural survival—by giving voice to the people who inhabit them every day.
