The Bob Edwards Show
Mon 5/20 6:00 am ET
Buzz Aldrin | Steve Winick & Nancy Groce; Buzz Aldrin was the second man to step foot on the moon and the first to punch an Apollo conspiracy theorist in the jaw after the man demanded Aldrin swear on a Bible that the Moon landings were not fake. Aldrin dedicated a chapter to the incident in his 2009 autobiography Magnificent Desolation, titled after the words that he uttered while walking on the moon. Now he's authored a new book from National Geographic in which he lays out his goals for the space program and how he believes we can get humans to Mars. It's titled Mission to Mars. Then, winter inspires the layering of sweaters, big jackets and long johns, and now that spring is here, t-shirts, shorts and swimsuits anxiously await their yearly debut. Steve Winick and Nancy Groce from the National Folklife Center at the Library of Congress return to the program with a topic for all seasons, 'clothing.'
