Topical Currents

South Florida based novelist Brad Meltzer discusses his latest thriller The President's Shadow

Kevin Smith and Brad Meltzer

07/16/15 - Listen for Thursday’s Topical Currents.  We’ll begin with South Florida-based novelist Brad Meltzer.  

His latest thriller is THE PRESIDENT’S SHADOW, so we’ll discuss little-known facts about Chief Executives and the Secret Service. For example?  President Reagan most always carried a pistol, even aboard Air Force One. Also, Linda Gassenheimer’s Food & Dining, with wine columnist Fred Tasker. That’s Topical Currents, Thursday at 1pm.

Listen to Linda's segment below and see this week's dinner in minutes at her websitehttp://www.dinnerinminutes.com/

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.
Richard Ives came to WLRN in September 2000 to begin a new career in radio. Born in Fort Lauderdale, his family moved to Long Island, New York, where he grew up. After graduation from college and an unsatisfying stint in a job that, as he puts it, "paid the bills but for which I had no passion" he found himself contemplating a midlife career change after being laid-off.
