Last Call: The Rise & Fall of Prohibition

It's hard for most of us to imagine now that there was a time in our country's history when pouring some wine with dinner or stopping for a beer after work would have been criminal activity. The story of Prohibition in the U.S. has a lot to teach us about policy, economics, law enforcement, and public morality. It's full of colorful characters and subplots, and its legacy is still seen in many of today's alcohol-related laws. Join us Monday for a chat with Daniel Okrent, author of Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition.   Listen to the Show
