Today's Show: Darwin and Slavery

Sorry I didn't post this earlier. Hard getting back into the swing of things after a day off .AT 3:30 ET I spoke with James Moore, co-author of a new book about Darwin that many of you sent me notes wanting a link on. Darwin was 200 years old last week and, unfortunately, we are still arguing about evolution. In a Gallup poll only 39% of Americans said they believes in evolution. Anyway, the book, Darwin's Sacred Cause: How a Hatred of Slavery Shaped Darwin's View of Evolution, is an important book that exposes a lot of myths.

We had good show today, lots of topics, and I want to thank everyone who called in -- very energetic -- including those who said they had guns under their pillows. What is the world coming to?
