Kojo invites Washingtonians to discuss last week's biggest demonstrations: The Turkish security force's violent crackdown on demonstrators in Sheridan Circle, the politically-charged light projections on Trump's D.C. hotel, one Georgetown professor's confrontation of a known white Nationalist at a local gym and more.
Guest Host: Sam Litzinger
We may spend the summer daydreaming about trips to exotic corners of the globe — although not all us will be lucky enough to jet off to them. But great writing often has the power to transport readers to foreign worlds. We talk with author and book reviewer Alan Cheuse about his new collection of travel essays, and how travel literature can ignite our imaginations.
- Alan Cheuse Book Reviewer, All Things Considered; Author, "A Trance After Breakfast;" Author, "To Catch the Lightning: A Novel of American Dreaming"
