04/03/13 - We see and read about tragedies and evil propagated by individuals . . . but it isn’t so often we hear about the unsung persons who take chances . . . even being disobedient and risking repercussions.  We’ll speak with journalist and author Eyal Press, author of BEAUTIFUL SOULS:  THE COURAGE AND CONSCIENCE OF ORDINARY PEOPLE IN EXTRAORDINARY TIMES.  What makes people go against the crowd, take chances, and face consequences?  That’s Topical Currents Wednesday at 1pm on WLRN-HD1, rebroadcast at 7pm on WLRN-HD2 and audio on-demand after the live show.
