NPR's Neal Conan Visits WFPL

Talk of the Nation host Neal Conan was in town this week for the Kentucky Author Forum, where he'll be interviewing Steven Pinker of Harvard University. Pinker is the author of The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined.

Neal Conan visited our studios to speak with WFPL’s Jonathan Bastian about political divisiveness, the art of the interview, and (of course!) baseball.

Click and Clack Retiring From Car Talk

The chatty mechanics on NPR's "Car Talk" are pulling in to the garage.

Tom and Ray Magliozzi said Friday they will stop making new episodes of their comic auto advice show at the end of September, 25 years after "Car Talk" began in Boston. The show airs every Saturday morning and is National Public Radio's most popular program.

Older brother Tom is 74 years old and the brothers say it's time to stop and smell the cappuccino.
