Terry Gross’ Fresh Air had two great interviews in the last week, go listen to the podcasts:
Ousted Evangelical Reflects On Faith, Future: “If you haven’t changed your mind ever, pinch yourself, you may be dead.”
Queen’s Brian May Rocks Out To Physics, Photography
Restoring the Paradise that Saddam Destroyed: “Saddam Hussein drained the unique wetlands of southern Iraq as a punishment to the region’s Marsh Arabs who had backed an uprising. Two decades later, one courageous US Iraqi is leading efforts to restore the marshes. Not even exploding bombs can deter him from his dream.”
