MONDAY: Photographer Richard Sexton; Author Aaron James
Photographer Richard Sexton joins Jim for the better part of today's show to discuss his life, his photographs, and his book Creole World: Photographs of New Orleans and the Latin Caribbean Sphere. The book is a complex, multi-layered essay linking New Orleans, which is frequently referred to as the northernmost Caribbean city, with its cultural kin further to the south. The similarities, which he finds in the book through photographs, are quite striking and at times uncanny.
Author Aaron James joins Jim to close out today's show, and he talks with Jim about his book "A**holes: A Theory." He explains why a**holes are the way they are, and why the majority of them are men.
