Bob Edwards Weekend, October 6 - 7, 2012
Bob talks with filmmaker Eugene Jarecki about his latest documentary The House I Live In. The film explores every level of the “War on Drugs” – from the dealer, the narcotics officer, the inmate, the prison guard to the federal judge and offers a sobering view of our criminal justice system.
Investigative journalist Andrew Nikiforuk writes about the ongoing development of the Keystone XL pipeline in Canada which will cross hundreds of salmon rivers and other protected lands. His article on the subject appears in the Fall edition of OnEarth Magazine. Nikiforuk will also discuss his new book, The Energy of Slaves: Oil and the New Servitude.
German physicists devoted to Nazi ideology rejected Albert Einstein’s work and derided it as ‘Jewish science.’ In his latest book, author and professor Steven Gimbel takes a closer look at this claim, examining Einstein’s contributions to physics through the lens of his cultural and religious background. Gimbel’s book is titled, Einstein’s Jewish Science: Physics at the Intersection of Politics and Religion.
