We’ll find out how entrepreneurship is shaping the Middle East. Junot Díaz joins us for this month’s Leonard Lopate Show Book Club to talk about The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. James Cullingham talks about his documentary about John Fahey, who’s been called the father of American primitive guitar, and who helped preserve the sound of the Delta blues and New Orleans jazz. And before you go for a hike this weekend, listen to this week’s Please Explain—it’s all about ticks!
