- 3:33: Book critic Paula Gallagher recommends "A Really Good Day," by Ayelet Waldman, a memoir of mood swings, marriage and microdosing LSD. Gallagher is a librarian at the Pikesville branch of the Baltimore County Public Library.
- 8:13: The Sun’s State House bureau chief Erin Cox talks about Maryland Governor Larry Hogan’s refusal to comment on President Donald J. Trump’s controversial — and now overturned — executive order on immigration. Plus, we get an update on the prospects for full marijuana legalization in Maryland.
- 21:13: In the spirit of international solidarity and adventurous cooking, Roughly Speaking foodies John Shields and Henry Hong join Dan to share recipes from the seven majority-Muslim countries targeted in President Trump’s executive order on immigration — Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen, Libya, Iraq and Iran. Shields, owner of Gertrude’s restaurant in the Baltimore Museum of Art, is an accomplished author of cookbooks, and he recommends two for anyone interested in the cuisine of the Middle East: “Jerusalem: A Cookbook,” and “Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen.” Look for the recipes discussed on the show in Dan’s Roughly Speaking blog post. Additional resources: The Sudanese Kitchen and chicken dishes from The Somali Kitchen, and a BBC program about the food of Syria. Henry Hong, “The Food Nerd,” is food and beverage manager at the Baltimore Country Club.
