    City Arts & Lectures Author Michael Lewis Last year, author Michael Lewis spent six months with President Obama. Lewis turned that unprecedented access -- in the Oval Office, on the basketball court, and even in the private quarters of the White House -- into a fascinating and intimate portrait for Vanity Fair magazine. A contributing editor to the magazine, Lewis is known for meticulous research on far reaching subjects. His most recent book, "Boomerang: The Meltdown Tour," chronicles the fiscal recklessness in both Europe and the U.S. that led to the current international debt crisis. Past works include "Liars Poker," "The Blind Side," "Moneyball," and "The Big Short." He appeared in conversation with Dacher Keltner on May 1, 2013 at the Nourse Theatre.

    Latino USA For Bullets, It's Open Borders The program visits Postville, Iowa, which five years ago was the site of the largest immigration raid in U.S history. Then, it looks for answers on why U.S border patrol agents are shooting into Mexico and killing innocent civilians. The show also presents a Mother's Day commentary on the decision to become -- or not to become -- a mom, and goes to a trailer park in Duroville, California where most its farmworker residents are leaving for newer housing.

    Marketplace Money Is College a Waste of Money? The program discusses the issue of wasting money. We don't just waste it on small items, like lottery tickets - we also throw money away on big items, like education. The program speaks with some who believe their costly college education wasn't worth it, and with others who've chosen alternative paths to education.
  • 10:00 pm
    TED Radio Hour Making Mistakes We try so hard to be perfect, to never make mistakes and to avoid failure at all costs. But mistakes happen - and when they do - how do we deal with being wrong? Speakers on the show look at those difficult moments in our lives, and consider why sometimes we need to make mistakes and face them head-on.
