Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, joins Bob to discuss the latest political news.

As a new American citizen, historian and best-selling author Simon Winchester burrowed into his adopted country’s history of unity for his new book The Men Who United the States: America’s Explorers, Inventors, Eccentrics, and Mavericks, and the Creation of One Nation, Indivisible.

Then, the latest installment of our ongoing series This I Believe.


Writer Stephan Talty’s new book, The Secret Agent: In Search of America’s Greatest World War II Spy, tells the story of wealthy oil man Eric Erickson, who spied against the Nazis, won the Medal of Freedom, and ultimately saved thousands of Allied lives.

Former Poet Laureate Billy Collins is out with his first volume of new and selected poetry in twelve years. Aimless Love includes fifty new poems that touch on themes of love, loss, joy and poetry itself.
