Liz Saint John interviews three guests every Sunday morning covering a variety of issues and topics. She talks with representatives from Bay Area non-profit organizations, documentary filmmakers, authors, and professors.

1. Patricia Park, the daughter of Korean immigrant parents who ran a grocery store in Queens, New York, offers a retelling of the Charlotte Bronte classic Jane Eyre in her new novel Re Jane. In this modern-day telling of the story of the orphan girl, the aunt has been replaced with an uncle and the scene is filled with hipsters and jell-o shots!
