    A couple of years ago, Annie was volunteering at a public radio station. The reporters who trained her told her that asking people what they had for breakfast was a good way to set your recording levels and make the interview subjects more comfortable. To Annie, what people had for breakfast was the most interesting part of the conversation. In this season of feasting and family, and the anxiety sometimes associated with it, we have a featured program about eating, and not eating-precisely, about Anorexia.

    South African journalist and anti-rape activist Charlene Smith and South African journalist Phillip van Niekerk on this edition of Fresh Air. Statistics say every 26 seconds a woman is raped in South Africa, the country with the fastest growing HIV rate. Last year, Smith was raped, and feared the man who raped her could have given her HIV/AIDS, and she had a hard time obtaining the drugs that could lessen the potential of her getting HIV. Smith then wrote about her experience and helped spread awareness about rape and HIV in South Africa.
