March 13th Show

In our first hour of Talk of the Nation (and our last day with guest host Robert Smth) we'll discuss dissent in the military. A former Marine sargent will be among our guests who will explain the consequences for disagreeing with a commanding officer in the military. At the end of the hour, we'll talk to Chicago Tribune syndicated advice columnist Amy Dickinson about marital infidelity and when a man or woman should (or shouldn't) stand by their cheating spouse.

In our second hour, we will talk to C. Vivian Stringer, head coach of the Rutgers University women's basketball team, about her recent 800th career game win, bouncing back from Don Imus' racial slur against her Rutgers team, and her new autobiography Standing Tall: A memoir of Tragedy and Triumph. Following that, we'll talk to the filmmakers of Girls Rock, a documentary about a music camp in Portland, Oregon where girls aged 8 to 18 learn what it takes to be a rock star in a rock-and-roll band.
