THURSDAY: Author Chuck Klosterman; Musician Nick Abraham; Investigative reporter Gus Garcia-Roberts
New York Times bestselling author Chuck Klosterman joins us on the phone this morning with a summary of his latest novel, "I Wear the Black Hat" -- where he addresses the modern understanding of villainy.
Nick Abraham is in studio next who tells the story of his life as a priest and subsequent nervous breakdown upon the revelation that he is gay. Nick seeks support from the metro council for a tolerance ordinance -- which he says would make the case that we are not a discriminating society. Abraham is also the lead singer of, "The Nick Abraham Xperience" which performs tonight at the Indigo.
Gus Garcia-Roberts, investigative reporter, has co-authored a book which dives "into the story behind the story" of the dozens of baseball players, including Alex Rodriguez, who were supplied PEDs from the Biogenesis clinic. "Blood Sport: Alex Rodriguez, Biogenesis and the Quest to End Baseball's Steroid Era" uncovers all sorts of extremely bizarre details about A'Rod. Garcia-Roberts shares some of those with Jim on this morning's show.
