For decades, women battered the walls of the male fortress of television journalism, until finally three - Diane Sawyer, Katie Couric, and Christiane Amanpour - broke through, definitively remaking America´s nightly news. Drawing on exclusive interviews with their colleagues and intimates from childhood on, bestselling author Sheila Weller crafts a lively and eye-opening narrative, revealing the combination of ambition, skill, and character that enabled these three singular women to infiltrate the once impenetrable ´´boys club´´ and become cultural icons. 1.

Making Health Public:How News Coverage Is Remaking Media, Medicine, and Contemporary Life Charles L. Briggs, Daniel C. Hallin
Spies are in the news again, but they´ve been in Alan Furst´s fiction for over 20 years. His new novel, Spies of the Balkans, is his 11th work of World War II-era espionage fiction. The book has been getting great reviews, but Furst tells Kurt he has no idea what he did right - he actually teleports to another time and place when he sits down at the typewriter.Next, a bucket of water, a piece of sheet metal, and a cactus. Just the average instrument checklist for Treasure State, a new collaboration between the bands Matmos and So Percussion. Performing live in the studio, they show Kurt how they use ordinary objects to make not-so-ordinary music. Then, disco is supposedly dead, but University of Southern California professor Alice Echols tells Kurt it´s very much alive in the pop music we hear today. Echols´ new book is Hot Stuff: Disco and the Remaking of American Culture.Finally, while the economy decays, there´s no shortage of work for belly dancers in Detroit. The city has one of the largest Arab populations outside of the Middle East and a vast network of dancers. Martina Guzman explores the belly dance scene and the conflicts the community has about their own young women performing publicly. [Broadcast Date: July 17, 2010] 1. Language: English.
