KPCW’s Sundance Reel Programming opened Friday with a Remote Broadcast from Whole Foods Market.  John Wells and Nell Larson were joined in the first hour by 4 documentary film makers, producers and subjects. ”Icarus,”  “Rancher Farmer, Fisherman”, ”Unrest” and “Trophy” are four feature length documentaries crossing a spectrum of timely issues.  

Co-host of KPCW's This Green Earth.
John's curiosity with science and technology began at the age of 7 with the country's space program. With a subscription his parents gave him to Popular Science and Popular Mechanics along with other periodicals and Walter Cronkite's evening broadcast he studied everything space. He followed the lives of America's test pilots and astronauts who piloted Mercury, Gemini and Apollo spacecraft. His curiosity in how things were built led him to dismantling the family's window fan, toaster and lawnmower. Taking apart things was easy. Putting them back together, well, not so much. John grew up in New York state and Massachusetts with 2 brothers and 2 sisters. He received a BA in Economics and Sociology from the University of Maryland.
