Writer Carl Hiaasen's Satirical Take On Florida Life

Tuesday, 18 August

'Miami Herald' columnist and author Carl Hiaasen's new novel, 'Squeeze Me,' is a hilarious mystery set in Palm Beach, featuring wealthy widows, the president and first lady, a scrappy wildlife removal specialist, and some gigantic Burmese pythons. We'll also talk about politics, and battles over voting in Florida that are setting the stage for a dramatic election in November.

Also John Powers reviews the documentary 'Coup 53,' about the US-supported coup which overthrew an elected government in Iran.
