Given the traditional yet mysterious association of wolves with sexual predation, it is not entirely surprising that this particular wolf is inquiring about little girls. After taking just a quick glance at the demented look in this creature’s eyes and examining his gaping, fang-filled maw, any individual in his right mind would surely take it upon himself to hide the members of his family that are closest to him in order to protect them from harm… especially his children. Interestingly enough, the human animal, much like the wolf, is a creature that can easily share the same aggression that we witness in this particular illustration. It’s somewhat fitting then that this picture achieves common ground with a recent viral video that touches on this subject. Take a look back at the famous interview with Antoine Dodson, and you’ll see what I mean.
From Garret Crowe in Chattanooga, Tennessee
Dick Cavett. Matt Lauer. Oprah Winfrey. Barbara Walters.
You know these names well, for they belong to those beloved individuals who have asked the questions that you longed to ask and brought you the stories that have changed your life.
Today we add a new name to this prestigious list: Garrett Crowe, the host of Around and About on 88.1, WUTC public radio in Chattanooga, TN.
On Friday, August 5th, I sat down with Garrett to answers a few questions for an interview which aired yesterday on WUTC. All in all I must say that it was one of the most fulfilling experiences thus far in the Wolves by Strangers project. As a result, I want to sincerely thank Garrett for his professional yet accessible interview and for his willingness to bring more attention to this project.
Thank you again, Garrett. I’ll cherish our time together as well as the gift of this fine illustration for many years to come.
Readers, you may access the WUTC interview here.
Dear faithful readership,
I am pleased to make the following announcements:
1. Today I conducted my first radio interview with Garret Crow of WUTC’s prestigious radio program Around and About. The interview will air at both 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 11 on 88.1 fm. I hope that you will join in my excitement at this opportunity and that you will, of course, continue to support the noble cause that is public radio.
2. I neglected to inform the WBS community that a short while ago a local graduate school student and talented writer by the name of Cole Rose produced an intensely fascinating article about WBS for the Chattanooga Pulse. An online version of the article may be viewed here. Also, Cole’s capable writing skills have resulted in enough local interest to spur an additional interview which is schedule to appear in the annual Chattanooga Pulse State of the Arts issue which will be distributed in late August. Keep your eyes open to get your copy!
3. As some of you may have noticed, a few changes have been made to the WBS website. As a result, any comments that have been previously made by viewers have unfortunately been lost, along with email subscriptions. I admit that I did shed tears of this tragic loss of input from lupine enthusiasts; however, WBS is now equipped with more “sharing” capabilities through the buttons that you see above and below the posts, and of course email subscriptions and commenting options are still available. I apology sincerely for the inconvenience, but as we know, The Great Wolf giveth and The Great Wolf taketh away. We may not always understand the ways of The Great Wolf, but we must trust its nature; for its divine bride Mother Earth will never steer it amiss.
Along these same lines, be prepared for additional email addresses for WBS in order to help streamline communication.
Stay frisky my friends!
