Hampton Sides - In this special 30 minute episode, bestselling author Hampton Sides shares his process for writing, the necessity of historical accuracy, and how the pleasure of reading is important. "Almost as important as the stories themselves, is how we tell them, and so we make them interesting and compelling and resonant for the next generation."

Our Lady: La Fiesta De Guadalupana - March in procession alongside the people of the South Broadway area of Albuquerque as they honor La Virgin de Guadalupe in their 60th annual fiesta. The virgin is said to have appeared to Mexican peasant, Juan Diego in 1531. Today, the community rallies around the virgin's feast day and they celebrate her in a procession through the neighborhood in which they have built altars to honor her.
