Valerie Plame & Amb. Joe Wilson: We’re Not The Real Victims

Valerie Plame & Amb. Joe Wilson: We’re Not The Real Victims
Valerie and Joe WilsonIn 2003, an American diplomat wrote a New York Times op-ed suggesting the Iraqi nuclear threat had been exaggerated. This did not go over well in the White House and his actions allegedly resulted in the exposure of his wife as a CIA operative. Ambassador Joe Wilson and Valerie Plame Wilson join us to discuss the jarring reality of sudden fame, the draw-down in Iraq and their reactions to Former Vice President Dick Cheney’s new book. They’ll be at Boston’s Symphony Hall on Weds., Nov. 30 for a lecture that’s part of the Boston Speakers Series.

Guests:
Valerie Plame Wilson, former covert CIA operative
Amb. Joe Wilson, former American diplomat

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
