Sen. Bernie Sanders

A Tribute to B. B. King

Frederick A.O. Schwarz, Jr.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) joins us to discuss his decision to run for the Democratic nomination for president and lays out his agenda for his campaign.

Frederick A.O. Schwarz, Jr., chief counsel at the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law and chief counsel in 1975 to the U.S. Senate Church Committee, which uncovered the FBI’s illegal COINTELPRO operation, joins us to discuss his book, “Democracy in the Dark: The Seduction of Government Secrecy,” which explores why the U.S. government is keeping more secrets.

Legendary blues musician B.B. King died Friday at the age of 89. We’re honoring the memory of the famed guitarist this week and next with a two-part conversation that was originally broadcast in September 2013.

Rep. Elijah Cummings

Greg Iles

Patricia Raybon

Dana Perino, the former White House press secretary under President George W. Bush, joins us to talk about her new memoir, “And the Good News Is … Lessons and Advice from the Bright Side,” in which she reflects on her White House experiences and her efforts to balance her career with her personal life.

In a pair of conversations from Baltimore, we explore what’s next for the city in the aftermath of the recent violence there and the indictments of six police officers in the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray. We hear first from Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland), then from Adam Jackson, CEO of the Baltimore-based advocacy group Leaders of a Beautful Struggle.

Novelist Greg Iles joins us to discuss the second part of his Southern gothic trilogy, “The Bone Tree,” a complex tale of race relations, Civil Rights-era violence, police and government corruption, and even the JFK assassination.

Author and journalist Patricia Raybon is a devout Christian; her daughter, Alana Raybon, converted to Islam 15 years ago, sparking a decade-long rift between them. They join us for a Mother’s Day weekend conversation about their book, “Undivided: A Muslim Daughter, Her Christian Mother, Their Path to Peace,” which lays out how they overcame differences over their respective faiths.
