Like most things in our post-modern world, masculinity is being deconstructed. Author and poet Carlos Andres Gomez takes a hammer to the gendered notion in his memoir MAN UP: Cracking the Code of Modern Manhood. Gomez talks to Bob about integrity, honor, and some other fractured nouns.
Then, American historian Harlow Giles Unger takes a fresh look at our nation’s sixth president in his new biography John Quincy Adams. Raised by John and Abigail Adams to be a great leader, Quincy Adams’ career spanned the administrations of George Washington to Abraham Lincoln. In this presidential election year, Bob looks back on one of our most important early leaders. [Broadcast Date: November 28, 2012]
