Cokie Roberts: Uniting Traditions for Interfaith Families

When NPR’s Cokie Roberts and her husband, Steve, married in 1966, they faced a choice familiar to many mixed-faith couples: practice no religion, pick one or the other, or find ways to observe both. They decided upon the latter. In “Our Haggadah: Uniting Traditions for Interfaith Families,”  the couple describes their approach to celebrating Passover with family and friends of all faiths. On today’s broadcast we’ll talk with Cokie about her family’s faith journey, as well as her latest professional projects.

Senior Driving

By the year 2030, one of every five drivers in America will be 65 years of age or older. While driving may seem like second nature, it does require complex skills that can decline as we age. On today’s broadcast we’ll examine the impact of the aging driver population. We’ll take a look at how to recognize when driving becomes hazardous and how to encourage elderly parents and friends to turn in their keys when driving abilities become impaired.
