Bob talks with environmental scientist James Lovelock about his latest book The Vanishing Face of Gaia. Lovelock argues that it’s already far too late to stop global warming, and that we should be committing our resources to surviving in the new hotter world to come instead of trying to stop it. Then, Rock journalist and memoirist Jancee Dunn explores the dichotomy of being a grown, successful professional, who, when she gets around her parents, immediately reverts back to her teenage self. Why Is My Mother Getting A Tattoo And Other Questions I Wish I Never Had To Ask asks if we ever really grow up, and chronicles Dunn’s attempt to come to grips with getting older.
