October's Playback Bringing You Tasty Audio Treats

October, it's the time to rake leaves, bob for apples, take a hayride and listen to the latest episode of Playback, the monthly podcast that revisits the best NPR had to offer from 25 years ago. This month's episode conjures up some frightening stories including the assassination of Indira Gandhi, the epic battle between Geraldine Ferraro and Barbara Bush, the mind games of Leon Redbone, and the twisted wreckage of John Waters' hilarious visit to the demolition derby. No matter if you like trick or treat, this month's Playback has a little something for everyone.
