    It's Your World (a broadcast of the World Affairs Council) NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen Political, economic and security ties have long united Europe and the United States, with NATO as an essential element of that relationship. Beyond the Euro-Atlantic area, NATO is working with partners across the globe, including in the Asia-Pacific, to build common security and support the stable, rules-based international order. The stability of our international system cannot be taken for granted; with its recent aggression against Ukraine, Russia has demonstrated blatant disregard for the international rulebook. NATO's Secretary General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, joins the show to set out how the U.S. and Europe, working through an outward-looking NATO, can continue to lead by example and safeguard the order on which our security and prosperity depend.

    City Arts & Lectures Tom Robbins Tom Robbins' warm, wise and wonderfully weird novels -- including "Still Life With Woodpecker" and "Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates" -- provide an entryway into the frontier of his singular imagination. Madcap but sincere, pulsating with strong social and philosophical undercurrents, his irreverent classics have introduced countless readers to natural-born hitchhiking cowgirls, born-again monkeys, a philosophizing can of beans, exiled royalty and problematic redheads. In his latest book "Tibetan Peach Pie," Robbins turns that unparalleled literary sensibility inward, stitching together stories of his unconventional life, from his Appalachian childhood to his globetrotting adventures. Tom Robbins appeared in conversation with Isabel Duffy on June 10, 2014.
