Last November, former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko was fatally poisoned in London. On today’s show, his widow and his friend Alex Goldfarb give their inside account of the international murder mystery. Then, a former male prostitute talks about how his relationship with the Reverend Ted Haggard brought down the former President of the National Association of Evangelicals. Plus, we explore the food writings of literary greats like Melville and Hawthorne. And Ruth Reichl and Alice Waters talk about Slow Food.
