Antita Weiss talks with The Old Mole's Bill Resnick about the current situation in Pakistan, nuclear weapons, and the consequences of possible US military action there. Weiss is Professor of International Studies at the University of Oregon and the author of several books.
Part Two of an interview with Carolyn Jessop who escaped from a fundamentalist Mormon polygamous community, talks with the Old Mole's Bill Resnick about her liberation. Part One of the interview was aired on last week's Old Mole Variety Hour. Jessop wrote the book Escape.
Today's show is hosted by Tom Becker. It begins with a Bill Resnick interview with Anita Weiss about what's going on in Pakistan and why the US should not engage in military action there. Larry Bowlden reviews Alice McDermott's novel At Weddings and Wakes--a "quiet novel." Tom reads a satirical piece by Steve Early called "How the Presidential Candidates Made Me an Atheist: Put God Back in the Closet Where It Belongs." And Bill Resnick alerts us to an important meeting with the new superintendent of Portland's schools on Friday, January 11 and the issues that will be on the table there.
