Yesterday I was interviewed about my book The Imperial Messenger: Thomas Friedman at Work for the Sunday WBAI/New York program “Beyond the Pale“. WBAI is part of the Pacifica Radio Network; the interview was conducted by Marissa Brostoff, former staff writer at The Forward newspaper and Tablet Magazine and author of a recent article for Salon.com on the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The hour-long program can be listened to here:
My part starts at minute 21 and ends at minute 38. Before me is Anthea Butler, professor of Religious Studies and Graduate Chair of Religion at the University of Pennsylvania, discussing the Herman Cain phenomenon with Kiera Feldman, author of an exposé for the Nation about Birthright Israel.
After me is a commemorative segment on recently deceased Palestinian poet Taha Muhammad Ali.
