Revisiting Inside Islam

Joe Hardtke

So we're in the middle of an encore presentation of our Inside Islam series, playing back all four shows we've done thus far. And thanks to our new Here on Earth hotline, we're still hearing your comments. Listeners are calling in to 1-877-GLOBE-07 and offering their thoughts on the rebroadcasts.

We heard from Josh who wanted to talk about censorship after our show on Islamic Metal. And Katham, who called for a more balanced approach from Barack Obama when talking to the Muslim world. And your input is welcome as well. Call 1-877-GLOBE-07 anytime, leave your name, where you're from and your comments. We'll play back the messages when we return with new shows next week. Of course, you can also join the dialog with Kaitlin, our blogger, at the Inside Islam site.

Dan, Patrick and I are all working on new shows this week. Some really interesting topics: Homosexuality in Islam, eco-adventures with David DeRothschild and (finally!) a long-delayed talk with high-wire artist Philippe Petit. You might know Mr. Petit from his amazing walk between the two towers of the World Trade Center in 1974 as told in the book and Oscar-nominated documentary Man on Wire.

It's going to be a great February! As always, we want your feedback! We'll post a few more tid-bits on upcoming shows very soon.
