The Best of Radio Times

March 27, 2014

Guests: Merl Reagle, Salman Rushdie & Amanda Ripley

Today we’re listening to some of our favorite recent Radio Times interviews. We begin with wordsmith MERL REAGLE, known for writing clever and challenging crossword puzzles. His affection for language is infectious. Award winning writer SALMAN RUSHDIE recounts his life living under a death sentence which he wrote about in his memoir, “Joseph Anton.” Listeners tell us they really like our shows about education. AMANDA RIPLEY tells us what she learned investigating schools in Finland, Poland and South Korea and what they reveal about the American school system. Her book is “The Smartest Kids in the World-and How They Got That Way.”
