The Poetry of Robinson Jeffers -- The poetry of Robinson Jeffers is emotionally direct, magnificently musical and philosophically profound.

Determined to write a truthful poetry purged of ephemeral things, Jeffers cultivated a style at once lyrical, tough-minded, and timeless.

The 'It's Complicated' Show -- The program presents stories including "A Jerusalem Love Story" by Daniel Estrin. Every relationship has its obstacles, but this one between two men - a Palestinian and an Israeli - may have more roadblocks than any couple can bear. Also included is "Other Halves" by Dennis Funk. When you enter a marriage, you assume that you know the essentials of who your partner really is. Turns out, not always.
