This Weekend's Program (Nov 9-10, 2013)

Bob Edwards Weekend, November 9-10, 2013


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

Then Bob talks with former astronaut Chris Hadfield about a few of his 4,000 hours spent in space, and about his new book An Astronaut’s Guide To Life On Earth: What Going to Space Taught Me About Ingenuity, Determination, and Being Prepared for Anything.  Earlier this year while aboard the International Space Station, Hadfield attracted the world’s attention when he released a series of photos and educational videos about life in space. His version of David Bowie’s “Space Oddity,” received over 10 million views in its first three days online.

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


Bob talks with poet, performance artist and author Carlos Andrés Gómez about his desire to deconstruct the notion of masculinity. The new paperback version of his book is titled Man Up: Reimagining Modern Manhood.

Stanley Jordan possesses a generous soul, a brilliant mind, and two of the most skilled hands to ever touch a guitar.  For the last thirty years, the Princeton graduate has toured the world, thrilling crowds at every stop.  In addition to writing original compositions, Jordan is known for his innovative arrangements of pop tunes, often performing on two guitars at once, or with one hand playing guitar and the other piano, switching when necessary.  Five years ago, he wowed Bob with songs from his album, State of Nature, and now he’s back with a new release, Friends, featuring collaborations with Regina Carter, Bucky Pizzarelli and Christian McBride among others. 

Bob Edwards Weekend airs on Sirius XM Public Radio (XM 121, Sirius 205) Saturdays from 8-10 AM ET.
