“Our body is a site of continual invention” writes tonight’s guest on Inquiry, HUGH ALDERSEY-WILLIAMS. His new book ANATOMIES: A CULTURAL HISTORY OF THE HUMAN BODY is a wonderful and surprising look at our bodies and it’s various parts, and what people through the centuries have thought about them.

What are worst, most deadly events in human history? Our guest tonight on Inquiry has written a book that describes and ranks the world’s worst wars, genocides and religious persecutions. MATTHEW WHITE is a writer, researcher and creator of the on-line Historical Atlas of the Twentieth Century. His new book is titled ATROCITIES: THE 100 DEADLIEST EPISODES IN HUMAN HISTORY. Tune in and learn what horrific event ranked at number one and why chaos is always deadlier than tyranny.

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
