Publisher's Summary

More than seventy-five percent of Americans eat peanut butter (our own Chad Campbell not being among them until his mid-30s). Jon Krampner explains how and why it became everyone’s favorite sandwich spread in his new book Creamy & Crunchy: An Informal History of Peanut Butter, the All-American Food.

Then, Bob talks with brothers Jonathan and Tad Richards about their new book titled Nick & Jake. In what’s billed as “an epistolary novel,” the two famous literary characters, Nick Carraway and Jake Barnes, refugees from Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby and Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, strike up a correspondence and then friendship and romp through 1950s America with a bizarre cast of fictional and historical figures including Sartre and Joe McCarthy. Jonathan Richards reviews movies for the Santa Fe New Mexican and his political cartoons are seen regularly in the Huffington Post. He illustrated Alan Arkin’s children’s book Cosmo. Tad Richards is the author of seventeen novels and various works of nonfiction, poetry, plays, screenplays and songs, most recently “Banks of the Hudson” on an album by singer/Congressman John Hall.

Finally, Bob talks sports with veteran sports columnist John Feinstein. [Broadcast Date: January 10, 2013]
