In early October, Dave Miller sat down with novelist Salman Rushdie at Literary Arts in downtown Portland to talk about Rushdie’s new memoir, Joseph Anton. We began the show at 12:06 p.m. as we do everyday, but at that same time President Obama was addressing the nation about the looming government shutdown and that is what you heard on OPB Radio. If you had tuned in to hear Salman Rushdie you would have missed the first 20 minutes.

So, we decided to use this Thanksgiving holiday to bring you that show in its entirety.

And, meanwhile, enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday and this special rebroadcast of Dave’s talk with Salman Rushdie.
