'Bob Edwards Weekend': Weiner, Romero and Brown

Bob Edwards Weekend

George Romero

Bob talks to Pulitzer Prize-winning "New York Times" correspondent Tim Weiner about his latest book, "Legacy of Ashes: The History of the CIA." It's already won a National Book Award and is up for a National Book Critics Circle award next week.

Lester Brown is the president of the Earth Policy Institute. He talks to Bob about how quickly the world is physically changing and what can be done to sustain the growing global population. Brown's most recent book is "Plan B, 3.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization."

With his groundbreaking 1968 film, "Night of the Living Dead," George Romero began a new era in American horror films. Now, forty years later, he's released the fifth in his "living dead" series. Romero talks about using horror as political allegory, why he'll never live in New York or Los Angeles, and about starting his filmmaking career with Mr. Rogers.

"Bob Edwards Weekend" is a two-hour interview showcase, in which celebrated host Bob Edwards highlights the life and work of interesting people, from newsmakers, historians, and authors to artists, actors, and regular folks too. The show is produced by XM Satellite Radio and distributed nationwide by PRI.
