1960 Olympics/Remembering Howard Zinn/Ted Robinson


1960 Winter Olympics The Winter Olympics begin today in Vancouver, British Columbia. Fifty years ago, the winter games were held at Squaw Valley. Today on Insight, we'll talk with two authors about how that came to be.

Remembering Howard Zinn Two weeks ago, Prof. Howard Zinn, a noted historian and social activist, passed away at age 87. During the past decade, KDVS radio host France Kassing spoke with Howard Zinn for her program "It's About You." Kassing remembers her conversations with Zinn.
