Publisher's Summary

In this hour, Sherman Alexie is a one-man culture industry. He's also pretty much a rock star guest. Steve Paulson and producer Veronica Rueckert look back on his first interview with TTBOOK, about his short story collection The Toughest Indian in the World.

Next, in this look behind the scenes, producer Veronica Rueckert and Anne Strainchamps remember our interview with Amy Wallace-Havens, the sister of the late David Foster Wallace. It's become a TTBOOK favorite for it's heart and humanity.

Then, in 2005, David Foster Wallace addressed the graduating class at Kenyon College in California. Anne Strainchamps looks back at this recording and what it's come to mean to her and her family..

After that, the nexus of science and religion has become a point of passion for interviewer Steve Paulson. In this segment, Steve looks back at TTBOOK's first interview with biologist E.O. Wilson. The remarkably candid conversation broke new ground in the tug of war between science and faith.

And finally, Jazz singer Kurt Elling inspires with his passion for music and the mysterious. Jim Fleming looks back at this illuminating interview with jazz singer and former divinity student Kurt Elling. [Broadcast Date: April 3, 2013]
