The Human Experience

Audio vignettes about us


What have we learned about ourselves as human beings? Who are we and why do we do what we do? Explore these questions in an audio essay series created by a group of anthropologists at the University of New Mexico. These essays were prepared in order to share with people everywhere the wisdom gained through the study of human cultures and behavior around the world.

The programs listed below were written by Dr. Robert D. Leonard and Mr. Anton Daughters, narrated by Anton Daughters, and produced by Paul Ingles, Kathleen Sabo and Anton Daughters.
