Friday, May 28, 2010

Pick of the Week: It's Pig: King of the Southern Table! Lori talks about this week and shares why she chooses Friday's show as her favorite. Check out the video below.

Monday: Wandering Souls: Join us on Memorial Day for an encore broadcast of our memorable Veterans Day program, “Wandering Souls.” Writer and Vietnam War veteran Wayne Karlin publishes stories about Vietnam from vets on both sides. His recent book, Wandering Souls, tells the story of Homer Steedly, one veteran who returned to Vietnam to meet the family of a man he killed.

Tuesday: Female Nomad and Friends: In 1987, Rita Golden Gelman set out to live her dream. She sold all her possessions and became a nomad. She wrote a book about her ongoing journey and, in 2001, insisted on putting her personal e-mail address in the last chapter—against all advice. She presents some of the stories her readers sent to her in the anthology Female Nomad and Friends and joins us to talk about the golden rules of breaking free.

Wednesday: New York City: Endangered Language Sanctuary: We’ll talk with linguist Daniel Kaufman, co-director of the Endangered Language Alliance, about finding and preserving the many endangered languages represented in New York City. Some languages, he says, have more speakers living in New York City than in the area of the world they came from!

Thursday: Courage and Light: As a photographer for the National Geographic, Jim Brandenburg took hundreds of pictures every day – until he burnt out. In an effort to rediscover his passion for photography, he set out to take just one picture a day for 90 days. He joins us with Parker Palmer to talk about their Courage & Light Project, aimed at helping people to rediscover their passion and creativity at work.

Friday: Cakewalk: Growing up with capricious and perpetually embattled parents, Kate Moses found refuge in the kitchen, where she taught herself to bake and finally found the one realm where she felt she had control. She joins us to talk about her new memoir-with-recipes, Cakewalk.
