This edition of the Old Mole Variety Hour is hosted by Denise Morris. It deals with making energy locally, the racial, gender and class politics of the Southern plantation household, Alice Munro's latest book, a novel by Nobel Prize winning Turkish author Orhan Pamuk, and a big leftist confab coming up in New York. ("Variety" is our middle name.)
