This Weekend's Program (May 10-11, 2014)

May 10-11, 2014


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

75 years ago today, the MS St. Louis set sail for Cuba and freedom with some the 900 Jewish refugees aboard. Dubbed “the saddest ship afloat” by the New York Times, the St. Louis was denied entrance by Cuba, the United States, and Canada before returning to Europe. Martin Goldsmith, author of Alex’s Wake: a Voyage of Betrayal and a Journey of Remembrance, shares with Bob the tragic tale of the St. Louis.


Steve Winter has been taking photographs for National Geographic since 1991, and his latest book is entitled Tigers Forever: Saving The World’s Most Endangered Big Cats. His stunning images are accompanied by the writing of Sharon Guynup, who illuminates the people and organizations fighting to defend this noble creature. 

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