The Vanishing Face of Gaia - Postponed

Joe Hardtke

It's a bit of a rough week around here! First Jean falls ill and is taking a well-deserved break at home. Then James Lovelock, our guest today, couldn't join us for this afternoon's live program.

Carly Yuenger will try to sort out things with Mr. Lovelock's publicist and reschedule the interview on his book The Vanishing Face of Gaia. In the meantime, we'll forge ahead Wednesday with Lori Skelton, who admirably offered to fill-in for Jean, and a thought-provoking show on the international history of poker. Not only its history, but how this French aristocratic parlor game continues to influence America's outlook on the world. Lisa Bu booked this program with James McManus, author of Cowboys Full: The Story of Poker, and it promises to be a suprising look at an everyday activity you might not think twice about.

As for today's show, we're rebroadcasting a program with lawyer, scholar and author Sumbul Ali-Karamali on her book The Muslim Next Door: The Qur'an, The Media and that Veil Thing. Even though we're not live, you can still call in and leave a comment at our Here on Earth hotline, 1-877-GLOBE-07, or leave a comment right here at the Blog Without Borders. We'll use them in a future mailbag segment. Thanks for listening and hanging in there! Don't get sick now...
