8/30- THOUGH AN HONOR STUDENT OF THE HOLOCAUST, NOBODY CAN MAKE YOU BREAK OUT OF IT AND SMILE LIKE BOB RODRIGUEZ.
ROBERT RODRIGUEZ is a professor, actor, comic, historian and folklorist; one of the happiest people you ever met although totally blind since birth. Barry has learned since he first met Bob in the 1970s that he’s one of the best go-to people in the world when the national mood needs a change toward lightness, brightness and good clean fun. Rodriguez visits with Sara and Barry this evening.

8/29- BUT CAN HE TOP WOODY ALLEN, WHO SAID, “I TOOK ONE OF THOSE SPEED-READING COURSES AND, SURE ENOUGH, I FINISHED “WAR AND PEACE” IN THIRTY-TWO MINUTES. IT’S ABOUT RUSSIA!”
HOWARD STEPHEN BERG is the world’s fastest reader. No scam here. He was cited by Guinness as able to read 25,000 words a minute, and that’s no less than 416 words a second. He may not perform for us. That’s awkward on radio, but we’ll have a lot of fun talking about how he got that way and how we can all improve our reading speed for fun and profit. Berg visits with Sara and Barry this evening.

8/28-WHICH IS THE GREATER DANGER; ATTACKING SYRIA OR LETTING A DICTATOR USE CHEMICAL WEAPONS WITH IMPUNITY?
Former New York Congressman JOHN LeBOUTILLIER, owner, according to Barry, of the best political mind in the English language, is probably the once-elected office-holder best equipped to answer the question, “What would Reagan do?” when the question arises of an attack on Syria. LeBoutillier visits with Sara and Barry this evening to formulate his reply at leisure and in detail.

8/27- WHAT’S THE MOST REQUESTED TOURIST ATTRACTION IN ALL OF HOLLYWOOD? YOU’RE EITHER INTERESTED -- OR A LIAR
WILLIAM GORDON, author of “The Ultimate Hollywood Tour Book: The Incomparable Guide to Movie Stars’ Homes, Movie and TV Locations, Scandals, Murders, Suicides and All the Famous Tourist Sites”, is a guest calculated to bring Sara great joy, even with her husband Barry sitting right there enjoying the proceedings right alongside. Gordon visits Sara and Barry this evening for a welcome switchover from cruise missiles in the Middle East to the explosive glitter of Hollywood’s on-and-off screen allure.

RYAN MAURO is a “security prodigy”. He got his first real job in national security at the age of 16. And he volunteered his services to the Reform Party of Syria, a group of non-extremists in Syria seeking American-style democracy, long before Syria arrived anywhere near page one. Mauro visits with Sara and Barry to comment on Secretary of State John Kerry’s warning to the Syrian Assad regime and America’s impending military action against it.

8/23-EXCUSE ME, NASA. WOULD YOU PLEASE ANSWER A SCIENTIST WHO KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT SPACE BUT MUCH ABOUT MATH?
Want to feel like a total fool for a few minutes, and then get educated and wise? Professor-writer-scientist-inventor ADRIAN VANCE does the obvious, in-plain-sight math revealing why any manned trip to Mars is absurd in any foreseeable future. (Just consider the weight of the necessary food and oxygen!) Vance visits with Sara and Barry this evening.
