    "wonderful radio"

    Overall

    At the risk of gushing, I love this program. The style is simple--a series of interviews with engaging people based on a particular theme--but somehow it manages to be informative, thought-provoking, entertaining and often quite moving. The interviewers are thoughtful and informed without ever being pedantic, and the interviewees are articulate and richly varied in background, interest, profession and voice. And it's a great deal--two hours of really good talk radio a week. Absolutely worth trying, and worth searching the archives, too--the breadth of topics is amazing.

  • "Excellent Breadth of Information"

    10 of 11 helpful votes

    I have been listening to this program for nine months now. I have found almost every program to contain interesting information. I certainly don?t agree with everything said, but I find the diversity of views fascinating. Often I find myself saying, ?I never thought of this in that way.? This program has broadened my outlook on life; it has challenged my thinking; it has confirmed my thinking in ways I wouldn?t have thought of. I have become a more thoughtful person as a result of listening to TTBOOK. If you are a person who enjoys having your thinking stretched and offered diverse topics for consideration, then this program will keep you coming back for more.

    In the new film, Love Is Strange, award-winning actor Alfred Molina plays George, a Catholic school teacher, who, after 39 years, marries his partner Ben, played by John Lithgow. When George’s employer learns of his marriage, they fire him, sending the newlyweds on a difficult journey. Love Is Strange opens wide August 29th. Then, over fifty years ago, writer Michael Harrington’s book, The Other America, predicted that unless American society addressed it’s widespread poverty problem, another journalist decades later would write about the exact same conditions that he had chronicled. Journalist Sasha Abramsky has done just that. His book, The American Way of Poverty: How the Other Half Still Lives, tells the stories of people around the country who are struggling to make it. And finally, we hear a new commentary from children’s book writer and illustrator Daniel Pinkwater.

    Three-quarters of Americans’ eyes never switch to night vision because most of us never experience true darkness. In fact, there are only a handful of places in the United States where total darkness can exist. In his new book, The End of Night, Paul Bogard explores the deleterious effect of dark deprivation upon our world. Then, with the Cold War long over, there seems little threat of an all-out nuclear war. But, as investigative journalist Eric Schlosser points out in his book, Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety, most of those weapons are not only still out there, they are on hair-trigger alert. Drawing recently declassified government documents and his own interviews with military personnel and nuclear scientists, Schlosser illuminates our illusion of nuclear safety.
