Nobel Prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison talks about censorship and the importance of the free word. Feminist icon Germaine Greer shares her thoughts on Shakespeare's wife Anne Hathaway — and on women in the world now. Author William Least Heat-Moon takes us on a journey along America's backroads and into his book, "Roads to Quoz: An American Mosey."
We listen in to one documentary's take on the new frontiers of jazz. A neuroscientist tells us why we're superstitious. (Don't think you are? Would you wear Jeffrey Dahmer's raincoat?) And we dig into the real life story of L. Frank Baum, the author of "The Wizard of Oz."
Best wishes this holiday season from all of us here at On Point. We'll be back with a full slate of new shows in 2010.
