Josh interviews Jean-Michel CousteauGreetings from Rome, Italy, where wife Sara, son Guthrie, and I are on a family vacation! I have to be quick because we've still got many miles of ruins to go before we sleep, but I just wanted to mention that tonight's show (at 7:30; repeated Friday night at 10:30 -- all times nine hours earlier in Italy) features my conversation with the delightful Jean-Michel Cousteau -- son of Jacques and, like his father, a passionate friend and documentarian of the sea. Also, there's a "Wandering Josh" segment in which I hand-feed a ravenous penguin named "Homie," who needs to go on a low-carb diet in the very near future (as will I, after all the gelati we've been consuming here).

More on Italy when I return (we just arrived last night, and saw the Pope in a window), but let me just mention one thing: it's not easy to use a moneybelt! For each Euro, I have to reach into my pants -- prompting Sara to crack wise about me needing to visit a Eurologist.

Anyhow, I hope you enjoy tonight's program -- and Cousteau's marvelous new series (co-produced by KQED), Ocean Adventures.

    Last night’s marine episode was classic josh kornbluth fare, which is both hilarious and informative. Cousteau interview was world class. Josh picks great guests and he makes us laugh a lot. Long Live Kornbluth!

    Dear Josh, Love, love, love your show!!! So positive and upbeat (even erudite!). But how come I can’t find any record online, on your site, of your interviews with the 2 college prof/authors? One was an African-American woman who’s written a book about Talking to Strangers and the other was the linguistics prof who’s written a book — something about elephants — like, Don’t say the word elephant, as he introduces it to his classes, etc. I WANT those books!!!!! I want to understand that right-wing, father-oriented, you-deseerve-to-be-miserable-cuz-you-brought-it-on-yourself kind of thinking (ie Republican….) Maybe then I won’t be so angry at them!!!!????? Regards, Yvonne Devine
