dc.descriptionThis is one of hundreds of 60-second radio spots created by the Center for East Asian Studies (CEAS) for Kansas Public Radio (KPR). The purpose of this outreach program is to introduce the people of Kansas to the culture and current issues of East Asia.
dc.description.abstractBroadcast Transcript: From Mongolia, land of fermented mare's milk, comes this beguiling morsel of nomadic oral tradition. It's called yertonciin gorav or Earth's Three. Earth's three what? Well, Earth's three top things in a number of categories. You have categories such as Fast and White. Within each category is a trio of elements, each meant to hand a soundbyte of nomadcentric lore down to the next generation. Under Earth's Three Fast, for example, you have clouds riding the wind across the sky, the thoughts of a clever person, a horse galloping and under Earth's Three White, you have an adult's teeth, an elder's hair, a corpse's bones. Call me corny, but I believe every country needs its own Earth's Three list. What would America's Three Fast be, I wonder? A meal at McDonald's, the movie-to-video turnaround time, Postcard from Asia. #ceas #hacker #mongolia
