Bob Edwards Weekend

September 6-7, 2014

HOUR ONE:

Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, joins Bob to discuss the latest political news. Then, we’ll hear the latest essay from children’s author and illustrator Daniel Pinkwater.

Best-selling author and master storyteller Ben Macintyre focuses his most recent book on Britain’s most notorious spy.  Charming and brilliant, MI6 agent Kim Philby rose to the top of Britain’s intelligence agency during the Cold War, all the while passing secret information on to the Soviet Union.  Macintyre’s book is A Spy Among Friends: Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal.

HOUR TWO:

Google maps have given us access—at least remotely—to some of the most far flung places on the Earth. But social geographer Alastair Bonnett says there is still plenty left in the world to be discovered. Bonnett’s new book is titled Unruly Places: Lost Spaces, Secret Cities, and Other Inscrutable Geographies.

If you’re looking for the perfect walking partner, look no further than writer and cognitive scientist Alexandra Horowitz… or if she’s unavailable, you can take along her book, On Looking: A Walker’s Guide to the Art of Observation.  Here Horowitz teaches readers what it means to be an expert observer.  On Looking is now available in paperback.

 

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