Publisher's Summary

Big Data: A Revolution That Will Transform How We Live, Work, and Think is Viktor Mayer-Schonberger and Kenneth Cukier’s book on “datafication”- an emerging science that tracks the movements of people, inventory, …and can even predict the spread of disease. Co-author and Economist data editor Kenneth Cukier joins Bob to discuss the book.

Then, singer-songwriter Josh Ritter has a knack for creating beautiful stream-of-conscious lyrics whether it be a single bittersweet memory about “Kathleen” or a heartfelt plea for women veterans as voiced in “Girl in the War.” His latest album, The Beast in Its Tracks, was written after his heartbreaking divorce, but it’s not as dire as you might think. Josh sits with Bob to explain why, and how he got to “Hopeful.” [Broadcast Date: March 21, 2013]
