The Invisible Line Between Politicians’ Public And Private Lives

The Invisible Line Between Politicians’ Public And Private Lives
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria ShriverA week after Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver announced that they were separating: the other shoe has officially dropped. The movie star and former California Governor has acknowledged that he fathered a child with a member of his household staff over a decade ago. Meantime, in New York, Dominique Strauss-Kahn – the chief of the International Monetary Fund – is being held at Rikers Island for allegedly tried to rape a hotel maid. While the specifics remain somewhat murky and the cases are vastly different, there’s little question that what both stories have in common, is that of the men in question behaved very badly. We’re joined by Boston Globe columnist Joanna Weiss and Arthur Goldhammer, a senior affiliate of the Center for European Studies at Harvard University and the author of a blog called French Politics.

The Great Back Bay Blackout
After a smoky electrical transformer fire knocked out power to about 21,000 homes and businesses, sections of the neighborhood are getting back online. But problems are expected to persist into tonight. We’ll have the latest.

Guests:
  Garrett Quinn, WGBH contributor and author of the Less is More blog on Boston.com
  Meg Mainzer-Cohen, president of the Back Bay Association
  Marcia Gregg, a Back Bay resident who (along with her family) lost power (and still doesn’t have it)
  David Jacobs, publisher and editor The Boston Courant, covers Back Bay, South End Beacon Hill and Fenway

The Baffler Is Back
The self-described “journal that blunts the cutting edge” is back in print after a two-year hiatus. The Baffler’s latest issue of scathing media, political and cultural criticism hits newsstands tomorrow. And no cow is sacred. (Not even the one that pays its bills).

Guests:
  John Summers, editor of The Baffler
  Thomas Frank, journalist and author of books like What’s The Matter With Kansas? and most recently, Pity The Billionaire. Founding editor of The Baffler
