04/15/13 - Monday’s Topical Currents is with Temple University professor and investigative author Joan Mellen.  She’s written THE GREAT GAME IN CUBA:  How the CIA Sabotaged Its Own Plot to Unseat Fidel Castro.  Her story revolves around Texas ranch-tycoon Robert Kleberg, and his loss of a huge Cuban satellite property to Fidel Castro’s land grab.  Shady CIA dealings included those of its Director, Allen Dulles, and then FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover.  That’s Topical Currents Monday at  1pm on WLRN-HD1, rebroadcast at 7pm on WLRN-HD2 and audio on-demand after the live program.
