I know it’s only the end of August, but it sure seems like a long hot summer is finally drawing to a close. Today we’re going to take a look at some of our favorite authors and conversations from the month of August. We’ll start with Judith Warner and her book, We've Got Issues, an extremely thought provoking look at our children, medication, and whether we’re raising a generation of drugged out zombies. The answer may surprise you.
Next, Maggie Linton talks with the author of her favorite book so far this year, 32 Candles, by debut novelist Ernessa Carter. And a gripping look at life in one platoon in Afghanistan by the author of The Perfect Storm – Sebastian Junger talks about his book, WAR. But first, Maggie has the top-ten downloads for the month of August. [Broadcast Date: August 31, 2010]
