Summary : The Bob Edwards Show, Nick Hornby, Ben Folds, and David Broder, November 19, 2010

David Broder of The Washington Post joins Bob to talk politics. Next, what do British novelist Nick Hornby and American piano player Ben Folds have in common? A new CD called Lonely Avenue, 11 songs featuring Hornby's lyrics and Folds' music and voice. They both join Bob at the piano in our performance studio to discuss how their long-distance mutual admiration turned into an album of playful yet often soul-stirring songs.

Then, in this week's installment of our ongoing series This I Believe, we hear the essay of James Johnson. He has been a professor at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts for the past 35 years. But he grew up in the "Sportsman's Paradise" of Louisiana, where he spent many hours duck hunting with his father. Johnson says the lessons he learned in the duckblind made him the person he is today. [Broadcast Date: November 19, 2010]
