Hosts of The Dinner Party, Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam, join Madeleine for their weekly booster shot of cultural news. This week: The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) meets on how to safeguard "intangible cultural heritage," Roger Craig, a Jeopardy! contestant, created a web application that helped him win the game show and for this week in history, we reminisce over Ford's Edsel. It rolled off the assembly line this week in 1959.

Guests:

Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newnam, hosts of the public radio show, "The Dinner Party." You can hear their hour-long show on Sundays at 3 p.m. on KPCC.
