The Republican Presidential Race

We look at the race among Republicans with O. Kay Henderson of Radio Iowa and Josh Rogers of New Hampshire Public Radio.

AIDS work in Zimbabwe

The rate of AIDS infection has fallen to a fifth of all adults in Zimbabwe, but that's because so many people with AIDS have died in the African nation. Now with the country's economy in free fall, the biggest challenge is not getting medicine to the sick, but getting food to both the patients and the healthcare workers. We speak with Dr. Carlo Spagnolli, head of the AIDS control program at the Luisa Guidotto Hospital in Mukoto, Zimbabwe.

Moose Calls

As the weather turns chilly here in New England, thoughts turn to sitting by the fire and sipping hot chocolate. But for young moose, it's rutting season. Matt Tinker is a nature guide with the Green Farm Guide Service in Coplin Plantation Maine. We listen to a few of his best moose calls and learn how to catch a glimpse of the elusive animal.

Blue Moo

Illustrator and author Sandra Boynton is best known for her lively, lyrical children's books featuring friendly hippos, penguins and pigs in fantastically silly scenarios. She's also a talented songwriter and is out with her fourth combination book-cd set titled "Blue Moo... 17 Jukebox Hits from Way Back Never." The album features Steve Lawrence, Brian Wilson, B.B. King, Patti LuPone and Davy Jones (formerly of The Monkees and Broadway). Davy Jones and Sandra Boynton join us.
