Listen 00:49:57

Guests: Ai-Jen Poo, Elie Wiesel, Anna Badkhen

Coming up on today’s edition of Radio Times in Review: we’ll hear from AI-JEN POO, director of the Domestic Workers Alliance. She joined Marty last year to talk about the upcoming challenges of what she calls the “elder boom,” in which an increasing percentage of Americans enter old age. We’ll listen to Marty’s 1995 interview with writer, activist and Holocaust survivor, ELIE WIESEL.  Wiesel died last weekend. He authored 57 books including Night, which described his experiences at the infamous Auschwitz and Buchenwald concentration camps.  And, we’ll hear from ANNA BADKHEN.  She joined Marty last year to discuss her time traveling with the nomadic cow-herders of Mali known as the Fulani.
