Lynn Ware Peek

Producer/ Co-Host

Lynn Ware Peek is a long-time contributor to KPCW. She joined the station in 2008 with Tales from the Wasatch Back, was a reporter from 2012 to 2016, and co-hosts and produces two of KPCW’s Public Affairs Hour shows, The Mountain Life, on health and lifestyle, on Wednesdays and Cool Science Radio, tackling science and technology every Thursday. 

  • Lynn and John talk with journalist and author Stephen Kurczy, author of The Quiet Zone: Unraveling the Mystery of a Town Suspended in Silence. Deep in the Appalachian Mountains lies the last truly quiet town in America. Green Bank, West Virginia, is a place at once futuristic and old-fashioned: It’s home to the Green Bank Observatory, where astronomers search the depths of the universe using the latest technology, while schoolchildren go without WiFi or iPads. Tune in to hear how this little town muddles through its existence.
  • Lynn and John speak with Professor Kyle Harper from the University of Oklahoma who has written a history of humans and their germs. The book Plagues upon the Earth weaves together a grand narrative of global history with insights from cutting-edge genetics. Harper explains why humanity’s uniquely dangerous disease pool is rooted deep in our evolutionary past, and why its growth is accelerated by technological progress.

  • Lynn speaks with Bill Eddy, co-founder of the High Conflict Institute and author of CALMING UPSET PEOPLE WITH E.A.R.: How Statements Showing Empathy, Attention, and Respect Can Quickly Defuse a Conflict.

  • In this episode of The Mountain Life Pete and Lynn’s guests include: Qian Julie Wang who has written a memoir called Beautiful Country. Wang writes about her and her parents fleeing political and cultural persecution in China, being a 7-year old with no English at school in a new country and surviving as an undocumented immigrant in America. Now a Yale Law School graduate, Wang shares her story. Then local health and yoga practitioner with a twist - Lauren Lockey, who joins the show to talk about how she combines her practice with saving animals at Sage Mountain Sanctuary where they provide shelter and advocacy for rescued farm animals.
