    All Things Considered Curt Schilling's Sock for Sale Baseball fans and collectors are currently bidding on a piece of baseball history: a bloody sock worn by former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling in the 2004 World Series. The sock had been on loan to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. But Schilling was forced to sell it to help repay personal loan guarantees to a failed video game venture in Rhode Island. The sock is expected to go for $100,000 or more. And while Schilling's reputation as a baseball hero in Boston remains intact, fans and taxpayers in Rhode Island on the hook for his business failings see him in a different light.

Anderson himself left his job as editor of Wired magazine to join a 22-year-old from Tijuana in running a typical Makers firm, 3D Robotics, which builds do-it-yourself drones.

    Forum 'Why Priests? A Failed Tradition' Garry Wills says he has nothing against priests. He respects priests, and he once tried to be one. But in his new book, he questions whether there is any precedent for the priesthood based in the early church and the New Testament. Wills argues that a church system that exalts priests runs counter to Jesus' teachings on community, and that the it can lead to corruption and sin. Author and historian Garry Wills joins us to talk about his book, "Why Priests? A Failed Tradition."

    Commonwealth Club John Mackey: A Whole-istic Approach to Capitalism Iconic CEO and co-founder of Whole Foods, John Mackey is known for an all-natural approach to his mega chain of grocery stores. The success of his stores is, in part, credited with a boom in the healthy food movement whereby terms like organic, local, wild and hormone-free are becoming rote for more than just the Birkenstock crowd. He's also taken the formula for conscious capitalism and corporate social responsibility to a whole new level, and other businesses are following suit. In his new book, "Conscious Capitalism," co-authored with Professor Raj Sisodia, Mackey discusses the transformative business movement wherein value rests on something more than just finances. For Mackey, it's about the emotional, ecological and even spiritual purposes of business. The market for competitive advantage is changing, and the world's best companies are catching on to the holistic equation.

    All Things Considered State Department Centerstage A new U.S. State Department effort marks something of a departure for the administration. Instead of sending U.S. artists abroad to carry out "soft diplomacy," the State Department is bringing artists from abroad here so they can go back to their homelands and tell their people - in voices they're more likely to believe -- how wonderful we are.

    All Things Considered Google Glasses, etc. Smart phones have quickly become the dominant technology of our time. But as NPR's Steve Henn reports, as computing processors get smaller and new flexible materials come online, it's silly to think that we are going to be tapping on flat pieces of glass forever. Some analysts believe in just five years wearable computing devices like Google's new spectacles and smart watches will outsell PCs.
