This week we bring you some of our favorite segments from the past season.  First, in a lush sound portrait from the show Our Chemical Landscape: The Wild, producer Diane Hope reveals how animals communicate in harsh climates using chemistry. Next, CHF's Bob Kenworthy explains how an old manufacturing town in Pennsylvania is attempting to clean up its tainted land from our Asbestos show.
