FROM THIS EPISODE

After primary victories on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton addressed a crowd in Brooklyn, acknowledging the historic moment: it appears she’ll be the first woman in history to be nominated by a major American political party for the presidency. But Bernie Sanders wasn’t having any of it. In a speech in Santa Monica, he vowed to press on to the Democratic convention in July. What does this portend for the campaign going forward? Then, since his death last week, many have called Muhammad Ali the greatest American Muslim. He was one of America’s most famous Muslims, but there are many notable American Muslims. Who are they? Next, humans don’t need to be part of a tribe in order to survive and we don’t need to sacrifice for the common good. Could that be why there are so many problems in American society? That’s the idea in a new book by Sebastian Junger called, “Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging.” And finally, exploring the world of exotic milks with Katherine Spiers.

Clinton Claims Victory, Sanders Digs In. What's Next? 17 MIN, 49 SEC

Hillary Clinton acknowledged the historic moment in a speech in Brooklyn, NY: it appears she’ll be the first woman in the nation’s history to be nominated by a major American political party to be president. But Bernie Sanders wasn’t having any of it. He barely mentioned Clinton at his rally in California, spending much more time on Donald Trump. And he stuck with his stump speech staples, healthcare and Wall Street, and vowed to press ahead to the final primary in Washington DC June 8th, and on to Philadelphia for the convention in July. When Sanders did finally mention Clinton, the crowd at the Santa Monica rally booed. What does this portend for the campaign going forward?

America’s Muslim Icons 7 MIN, 39 SEC

The great boxer Muhammad Ali converted to Islam in the 1960s, changing his name from Cassius Clay. Ali was arguably ‘the greatest’ in boxing, for sure. And since his death last week, many have also called Muhammad Ali the greatest American Muslim. He was one of America’s most famous Muslims, but there are many notable American Muslims. Some are very public about their faith, some aren’t. And since it’s Ramadan – the holy month that most of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims are currently observing – we thought we’d talk about who some of America’s Muslim icons are.

Sebastian Junger on the Human Urge to Be Part of a 'Tribe' 14 MIN, 22 SEC

Most of us in the modern world don’t have to worry about starvation or invading armies.  We don’t need to be part of a tribe in order to survive and we don’t need to sacrifice for the common good. Could that be why there are so many problems in American society, from school shootings to drug addiction to PTSD? That’s the idea in a new book by Sebastian Junger called, “Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging.” Junger has been a foreign correspondent and has written a lot about combat and adversity; and in Tribe, he writes that combat and adversity can actually be good things – they can knit people together and give them a sense of purpose and comfort.
