Topical Currents

Admitting Ignorance (Except When You Shouldn't)

09/12/13 - Thursday's Topical Currents begins with the notion that it’s OK to say “I Don’t Know.”   Is it human nature to pretend we do even when we don’t?  Parents seldom want kids to know they don’t have an answer:  “Daddy, why is the sky blue?”  Perhaps politicians would be better off to admit they don’t know either.  Join Leah Hager Cohen, author of I Don’t Know: In Praise of Admitting Ignorance (Except When You Shouldn’t).”  And more:  Linda Gassenheimer and Bulldog Barbecue’s Howie Kleinberg.  He has football tailgating tips on the next Topical Currents, Thursday at 1pm on WLRN. 

WLRN Radio's Joseph Cooper says producing and hosting Topical Currents is the most rewarding experience of his long radio career, which began at the University of Missouri School of Journalism in the 1970s.
