Guest: 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.
