Opening Of Show

Interview: Pascale le Draoulec
"My main goal was finding a real slice of America, and pie was just my vehicle -- or my conceit, my handshake, as it were -- because there's something about pie that makes Americans completely melt and open up."
--Pascale le Draoulec, working to discover the heart of America by searching for the ultimate piece of pie.

Rainbow Gathering
"They believe corporate culture is killing America, and they believe the world needs more peace. The gathering is part-reunion, part-protest: 20,000 people praying, meditating, getting along co-operatively. There are mountains, music, naked long-haired kids sitting in circles, playing flutes and smoking pot."
--Barrett Golding, getting down to nature with the Rainbow Family, camping in Montana's Beaverhead Forest.

Local Station Break:

The Circus
"In my mind, it's the last big traditional 'old time' circus, and that's what I wanted to be a part of. Then, all my kids grew up, I got a divorce, my dog died, and here I am."
--James Royal, the ringmaster of the Carson & Barnes 5-Ring Circus, on why he joined the circus.

Local Station Break:

Deal Of The Week: Gotham in Winter! Book Ahead!
