Listen 48:59

Guests: Bobby Allyn, Adam Valen Levinson

ADAM VALEN LEVINSON is on a mission to bridge the world’s cultural and ideological divisions through humor. His new travel memoir, The Abu Dhabi Bar Mitzvah Levinson writes about his decision to travel throughout the Middle East as a Jew in order to counter the fear that 9/11 provoked in so many Americans. Levinson joins us on the show today to talk about his laugh filled adventures and why Americans shouldn’t be scared of the world. But first, we’ll get an update on the imprisonment of Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill, who was just denied bail for charges of violating probation. WHYY’s BOBBY ALLYN tells us the latest.
