On today's show: a cheese taste-off between France and the USA. American cheesemakers' reputations have lagged behind the French, but with a cheese renaissance happening in states like Vermont and Wisconsin, the Americans might be catching up. Then, a look at the diversity of Indian cuisine, beyond saag paneer and naan. Also, new archaeological details about Petra, which was the capital of a powerful Middle Eastern trading empire 2,000 years ago. And Robert Novak on his 50 year career covering politics in Washington, DC.
