Determined to revive traditional ice cream making using only whole ingredients sourced from the finest small producers, Ben Van Leeuwen  opened his ice cream business in 2008 in Green Point, Brooklyn, with little more than a pair of buttercup yellow trucks.  In less than a decade, it's become a nationally recognized name while remaining steadfast to the commitment of bringing ice cream back to the basics: creating rich flavors using real ingredients. Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30 when Al is joined by Ben for what promises to be a very tasty segment.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is an alarmingly common traumatic disorder found in survivors of war, rape, natural disasters and torture. There is a numbing of the emotions, there may be nightmares and hallucinations and hypervigilence  and it destroys the fabric of time for the person who has it. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with DAVID J. MORRIS, author, former Marine infantry officer and journalist who has covered the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. His new book is THE EVIL HOURS: A BIOGRAPHY OF POST-TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER. This is an amazing personal, clinical and historical look at PTSD and what the treatment options are currently. Don’t miss this interview!

After World War II, a large number of Nazis were allowed to escape Germany. Many went to South America, a large number went to America. Some worked on our rocket program, but more were recruited as anti Soviet spies, who when they retired took up residences in quiet corners of our country, including Worcester MA. The CIA and the FBI worked hard to keep Nazi hunters from discovering these people, some of whom had committed horrific atrocities during the war. Tonight on Inquiry we talk with ERIC LICHTBLAU, writer and investigative reporter for the New York Times and other publications about his shocking new book THE NAZIS NEXT DOOR: HOW AMERICA BECAME A SAFE HAVEN FOR HITLER’S MEN.

Dada was at art movement born in a small café in Zurich in 1916 when a few outsider artists and performers created work that confounded everyone’s understanding of what constituted art. It was shocking and wildly creative. Dada spread to Germany, Russia and even to America and its influences can be seen today in music and film. Tune in to Inquiry tonight when we talk with JED RASULA, the Helen S. Lanier Distinguished Professor of English at the University of Georgia, about his new history: DESTRUCTION WAS MY BEATRICE: DADA AND THE UNMAKING OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY.
