November 7th Show

On Wednesdays you usually hear our political junkie segment at the END of the first hour. Today and over the next several weeks, we'll supersize our segment. There is so much happening in the political arena, seventeen minutes is just not long enough. Ken Rudin will join us at the top of the hour and cover the week in politics. Among the topics — the results of yesterday's elections, Pat Robertson's endorsement of Rudy Giuliani, and Dennis Kucinich's bill to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney. See, we really do need more time! And speaking of supersize, a prayer has been answered in the form of a recent report that says a little bit of body fat could actually be good for you. Dr. Timothy Church will join us to give us the skinny (sorry!) and answer your questions about weight and your health.

In our second hour, we'll talk to Terri Irwin, the widow of "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin. She is keeping her husband's legacy alive by continuing to operate the Australia Zoo they built up together, and develop television programs based on Steve's unique approach to animals. Terri Irwin will talk about life since her husband's untimely passing and her new book entitled "Steve and Me." After that, we'll talk to actor Michael C. Hall about his starring role in the Showtime series "Dexter" that is now in its second season. Just how does he manage to play a likable serial killer anyway?
