An old NPR Interview is posted online

On June 5, 2009, Hana Baba was the co-host of "CrossCurrents", the evening newsmagazine on KALW Public Radio 91.7FM in San Francisco (an NPR station). She came to the house and interviewed me, and our talk aired on June 15th in the Bay Area. I recently discovered that the interview is now posted in the Archives at KALW. The photos that accompany this Newsletter illustrate a few of the things that we talked about in the interview. If you’d like to hear the interview, click here:
