This American Life has a great episode this week about the intertwined path of two doctors (both coincidentally with the last name Gilmer).  I got to take this portrait of Dr. Benjamin Gilmer for their website at his clinic on Cane Creek Road just outside of Asheville.  His office is actually just down the road from Jeremy and Amanda, the Cane Creek Valley farmers I followed for a growing season back in 2009.  It was neat listening to the episode having met some of the people and visited some of the places in the story.  Really grateful for the opportunity to help in a small way with this story – thank you This American Life.  I’m a big fan.
