With the languid, lazy days of summer almost over, we'll bring you a show all about the passage of time. We'll dip in to the Metro Connection archives and meet a woman who's been something of a piano prodigy for more than 90 years. We'll join a local scientist in Panama, to find out what sorts of frogs used to live in the jungles there — and what's being done now to prevent their rapid disappearance. And we'll visit a pilgrimage site held sacred by the Piscataway nation of Native Americans.
