On today's show: We’ll talk to former New Yorker staff writer Dan Baum about the people of New Orleans. Then, we'll speak with Daniyal Mueenuddin about his new collection of stories about Pakistan. Plus, a discussion with film critic Molly Haskell about why the movie version of "Gone with the Wind" still holds up. Followed by Jeffrey Couchman on a different, often-overlooked, cinematic gem: "The Night of the Hunter." And finally we’ll hear from Chuck Sudetic about the trials and tribulations of the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and for Rwanda.
