This week should be interesting as we try to pull the show off with me in Daytona Beach on vacation, Momma Poilitico is attending a music festival. We will have Mel subbing for Momma on the switchboard.
Allie and I will talking with Joel Achenbach the author of The Hole at the bottom of the Sea:The Race to Kill the BP Oil Gusher and Washington Post staff writer. Check out the link to Amazon and read the rave reviews for this outstanding piece of work on the BP oilspill disaster.
Here is the very first review on Amazon to give you an idea
This review is from: A Hole at the Bottom of the Sea: The Race to Kill the BP Oil Gusher (Hardcover)
I read A Hole at the Bottom of the Sea in two days – I hope that neither author minds the comparison, but it reads a lot like a Michael Lewis book. The book skillfully explains a complex issue told through the eyes of the quirky characters who had a front row seat to the disaster, which includes Mr. Achenbach himself. If you are a fan of the Achenblog or of his stories in the Washington Post, you won’t be surprised to find yourself laughing out loud at times – which may seem inappropriate given the subject matter, but that is the charm of one of my favorite writers…
We hope you have been enjoying our show as much as we have been enjoying bringing it to you! Give us some feedback! I would love to hear what you think about the little grassroots progressive radio show.
See you on the radio from Daytona Beach!
