Tulsa, Oklahoma – Why are we --- as a culture --- so fascinated with Ancient Egypt? On our show today, we speak by phone with Dr. Kara Cooney, the Egyptologist, UCLA professor, and host of the Discovery Channel's "Out of Egypt" program. Dr. Cooney recently appeared here in Tulsa at a "Third Thursday" event at the Philbrook Museum of Art. Philbrook's wonderful exhibit called "To Live Forever: Egyptian Treasures from the Brooklyn Museum" continues through September 12th. (Details of this show are at philbrook.org.)
