The Sunday Edition with Michael Enright: a reader

If you're anything like me, the only station playing on your radio is the CBC. I go back and forth between Radio 1 and Radio 2, depending on the time of day and the day of the week. On Sunday mornings, however, I make sure to tune my battered little portable to 90.5 by 9:00 a.m. for The Sunday Edition with Michael Enright.

Among the fascinating figures interviewed by Enright on his program are politicians, economists, and journalists who are also authors. I've compiled a list of some of the books mentioned in recent episodes - with links to the original podcasts - in case you slept in that morning.
