Is it going to rain?
22:02Forget weather apps -- by looking and listening outside, how can you tell if it's going to rain? Perfect for staring out of car windows or finding a cozy space to draw, Andrew & Polly ask their friends from New Zealand to Arkansas all about the weather where they live.

We compose a storm of voices by sampling our incredible audience. We think about glaciers and droughts with hydrologist Dr. Jess Driscoll.
