Michael Pollan shares some of his rules for eating wisely in the New Year. Then, Tracy Chevalier and Shelley Emling look at the life and times of Mary Anning, a world-renowned 19th-century paleontologist. Plus the director and one of the stars of a charmingly innovative production of Noel Coward’s play "Brief Encounter." And, we’ll learn about the two 16th-century German cartographers who named the new world after Amerigo Vespuci…and why the name "America" is the one that stuck.
