This Weekend's Program

Bob Edwards Weekend, February 9-10, 2013

Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, joins Bob to discuss the latest political news.
Dror Moreh is director of The Gatekeepers, a striking documentary about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. The film gives a history of Israel and its intelligence service, the Shin Bet, through interviews with the last six living former heads of the espionage organization. The Gatekeepers is nominated for Best Documentary at this year’s Academy Awards.
Then, the latest installment of our ongoing series This I Believe.  This week, we hear from Lorena Templeton Querns about growing her family through adoption.

Pulitzer-Prize winning author Jared Diamond talks to Bob about his 48 years in Papua New Guinea, his interest in tribal culture, and his latest book The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn From Traditional Societies?
For over 20 years, illustrator and author Danny Gregory has created one personal illustration a day in addition to his regular work.  This habit guided him through the painful and shocking death of his wife Patti, who died in 2010.  Gregory compiled his illustrations along with his and Patti’s story in his new book A Kiss Before You Go: An Illustrated Memoir of Love and Loss.

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