Listen 00:49:49

Guests: Jeannette Walls, Mary Pilon, Jason Vieaux

On today’s edition of Radio Times in Review we’ll hear from memoirist JEANNETTE WALLS.  Her book The Glass Castle is currently in the development stages of becoming a motion picture. Then, we’ll hear about the history of the most popular board game in history, Monopoly.  Author MARY PILON goes into the dramatic and complicated backstory of the game, as well as how the game infiltrated American culture in her book The Monopolists. Finally, we’ll hear from Grammy Award winning classical guitarist, JASON VIEAUX.  He joined us last year to tell us about how he got started playing his instrument of choice and gave us insight into some of his technique. He also performed a couple of songs live in our studio.
