Chris Lydon On A New Theory About JFK's Assassination

October 3, 2013

Radio Open Source host Christopher Lydon talked to Jim Braude and Margery Eagan about a sensational new book about the death of our thirty-fifth president, John F. Kennedy. Was Pres. Kennedy killed due to a sudden shift in ideology? Was the President trying to move past war-mongering to an agenda of peace? Chris Lydon investigated James Douglass's new book, JFK And The Unspeakable.

Also on BPR:

  • Former Rep. Peter Torkildsen talked about the government shutdown in 1995.
  • Boston Globe enterprise sports reporter Shira Springer joined Jim and Margery to talk about offensive sports team names, and her time in Utah with prospective US Olympians.
  • Kara Miller talked about why the US workforce is at great risk for replacement — by robots.
