In Zoo Nonsense, Author Don Clifford and Illustrator Olga Cruhm have combined their talents to create a wonderful alphabet learning aid that children, parents and grandparents alike will enjoy! Fun with words and how they can be twisted into off-the-wall sentences is the hallmark of Don Clifford’s Zoo Nonsense. The easy to remember limerick style of poetry adds to the overall enjoyment of reading Clifford’s wacky poems. Olga Cruhm’s artistry adds a visual treat and in many instances is just as wacky as the poetry.

Latino USA with Maria HinojosaLong gone are the days of repressive, military dictatorships in the Americas. Still, journalists are facing new forms of censorship, as well as threats from non state actors that make some countries in the hemisphere some of the deadliest places in the world to be a journalist. Despite some improvements in the past few years, more journalists have died covering the drug war in Mexico than covering the war in Afghanistan, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. In fact, if you also take into account the number of journalists whose murder has not been confirmed as related to their work, the number of deaths is close to the rate in Syria. Colombia remains one of the deadliest places to be a journalist, and much like Honduras and Guatemala, a majority of the killings are left in impunity.

An Interesting NotePunch Brothers - March 16, 2015, by Bob Boilen • Spoiler alert: The Punch Brothers came to the Tiny Desk on Chris Thile's birthday. We made him a cake and gave him an NPR surprise! This wasn't the first time the brilliant mandolinist had brought a project to my desk, it was his fourth. The last time was with his longtime band Nickel Creek — and his new braces. So the cake we presented here was inscribed "Brace Yourself Chris Happy Birthday." He blew out the candles and then, along with this versatile and talented group, rocked our world.
