Listen 00:48:47

Guests: Lawrence Lessig, Nadine Cohodas, Richard Blanco

Coming up on today’s edition of Radio Times in Review: we’ll hear Marty’s conversation with Harvard Law professor, LAWRENCE LESSIG, whose crusade to reform campaign finance law has led him to announce a bid for the presidency. He joined us last year to give us his take on money and politics. We’ll also revisit Marty’s conversation with biographer NADINE COHODAS who joined Marty to discuss Nina Simone. Netflix recently released a documentary about the late husky-voiced jazz singer and civil rights activist. And, we’ll listen to Marty’s interview with Cuban-American poet RICHARD BLANCO. He was recently tasked by the US government to write and recite a poem to commemorate the opening of the US embassy in Havana.
