Saturday Hub: Week in Review (week ending 5/27)

Here are some conversations, interviews and articles that caught our attention during the week ending May 27, 2011.

Our suggestions this week:

  • Charles Fishman, journalist and author of The Big Thirst,” (affiliate link) was a guest on Minnesota Public Radio’s Midmorning earlier this week.  Fishman also wrote the book “The Wal-Mart Effect” several years ago. You can listen to this conversation/interview here.
  • Comedian and late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon was a guest on Fresh Air earlier this week. I’m usually not up late enough to catch his show, but I found the interview fun to listen to. You can listen to it here.
  • Tuesday, May 24, 2011 was the 70th birthday of Bob Dylan, one of the most admired and influential artists of our time – and he happens to be from Minnesota. You can listen to a wonderful documentary on the life and times of Dylan here.

On a side note:

If you like instrumental piano music and are inclined to support independent music, please take a few moments to check out my project on Kickstarter and consider pre-ordering a copy of my new CD titled Simple Things!

Be well and have a great weekend!
