Gabrielle Glaser on her book "Her Best Kept Secret" about women and drinking

Author Gabrielle Glaser knows about women and drinking.  Throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s, she watched women move from glasses of wine to flasks to sneaking big Merlot empties into recycling bins.  And she did a fair amount of drinking herself.  She's written a book about it, called "Her Best Kept Secret".  Don Merrill talks with Gabrielle Glaser about why women can be honest with themselves about their drinking and why AA doesn't work for them.

Current issues

Today we'll hear a recent program from the series Making Contact. It features Matthew Rothschild of Progressive Radio interviewing labor leader and author Bill Fletcher Jr.

Unions are getting weaker. Legislation passed in Wisconsin in 2011, and Michigan in 2012 struck at the heart of their traditional member base. Even more threatening, says Bill Fletcher Jr., the general public no longer understands or supports organized labor. This program explores why working Americans and unions have lost touch with one another and what might be done to turn that around.
