In todays edition of the  program Lynn and Tim speak with Steven Pinker - he's a cognitive scientist, a linguist, a professor in the school of psychology at Harvard and author of a new book The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person's Guide to Writing in the 21st Century. Then, half of Americans will experience poverty  at some point before they're 65.  Their guest Linda Tirado is one on those people.  She wrote a blog that ended up with over 6 million views called, "Why I Make Terrible Decisions or Poverty thoughts." Finally, another topic that delves into life.  This one is about choosing Mr. Right after a handful of Mr. Wrongs.  from guest is Margo Howard, Ann Landers daughter.  That's a name most can relate to.  Her new book is called Eat, Drink And Re-marry.
