David Broder of The Washington Post joins Bob to talk politics. Next, independent film director Andrew Bujalski is at the forefront of the so-called “Mumblecore” movement. Bujalski often casts first-time actors and uses a small film crew, moving between locations quickly. The plots are slice-of-life, often lacking traditional Hollywood resolution. Bujalski’s latest film is called Beeswax, and it follows the difficult interactions of twin sisters Jeannie and Lauren, who run a business together. His previous films includeFunny Ha HaandMutual Appreciation.Then, in this week’s installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, Bob talks with executive director Dan Gediman about the essay from Iowa native Anne Heywood. She held 34 different jobs before founding the Career Changing Clinic in New York City to help service men and women returning from World War II find work. Heywood was the author of There Is a Right Job for Every Woman.
