12:00 - An insightful memoir from writer Frances Stroh Beer Money: A Memoir of Privilege and Loss that features beautiful evocative photos throughout and is mercilessly clear-eyed in its self-appraisal—at once a universally relatable family drama and a great American story. Established in Detroit in 1850, by 1984 the Stroh Brewing Company had become the largest private beer fortune in America and a brand emblematic of the American dream itself; while Stroh was coming of age, the Stroh family fortune was estimated to be worth $700 million. But behind the beautiful facade lay a crumbling foundation.

Ari and Angie will examine our post-truth political landscape: distortions of truth transformed into common knowledge by a powerful network of special-interest groups and politicians. In his new book, Ari documents the carefully concealed, ever-growing industry of organized misinformation, paid to create and disseminate lies in the service of political agendas. His revelatory history of this public-deception industry uncovers the ideological groups shaping American politics with coordinated assaults on the truth. Let us know you're coming, RSVP here.

Roach dodges hostile fire with the U.S. Marine Corps Paintball Team as part of a study on hearing loss and survivability in combat. She visits the fashion design studio of U.S. Army Natick Labs and learns why a zipper is a problem for a sniper. Among many other surprises. Take a tour of duty with Roach, and you ll never see our nation's defenders in the same way again.

In Deep with Angie Coiro

Live From Kepler's Books every Wednesday!

Come see us record our broadcast/podcast show at Menlo Park’s venerable Kepler’s Books, a community home to discourse and ideas for sixty years.

In Deep began as The Angie Coiro Show on the San Francisco radio dial in 2009. It's evolved into a syndicated show heard across the country. We cast a sharp, inquisitive eye on America’s cultural underpinnings: politics, art, and society. We bring you good conversations that matter, with heart and a sense of humor.

Kepler’s tradition is right in line with our own. The store was founded by a peace activist in 1955. It provided an early home for the Grateful Dead, and held social and political salons that prefigured its current packed slate of events. With partner Peninsula Arts and Letters, Kepler’s has created a vibrant community for thought-provoking dialogue and smart entertainment.

We’re glad you’re listening. And we’d love to see you at Kepler’s! Most shows are free. The occasional Premium Shows carry a $10 charge. Reservations for both are available via our Kepler’s ticket page.

Show and guest suggestions are always welcome. Send us an email, visit our Facebook page, or reach out via Twitter.

See you at Kepler’s!
