Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, joins Bob to discuss the latest political news.
Next, Jeff Himmelman has gotten a lot of flak recently for his authorized biography about Washington Post legend Ben Bradlee, Yours in Truth. Since the release of the book, Bob Woodward – Himmelman’s former boss and co-author — has made the accusation that the young writer “betrayed” his former mentor to write a cheap “tell-all.” Himmelman joins Bob to talk about the dangers in writing about people who are still alive.
Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing seriesThis I Believe, we hear the essay of Tina Boscha. Stepmothers get a bad press. From the ancient Greeks to Cinderella to countless movies, a sour expression and a bad attitude have been the hallmarks of Dad’s new wife. Boscha is doing her best to change that stereotype. She loves her stepkids and experiences all the joys and frustrations of being a parent. [Broadcast Date: July 13, 2012]
