In this hour, Gabor Maté is a physician at OnSite, a Vancouver detox facility and the only supervised injection site in North America. He's also the author of In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts. He tells Jim Fleming that addicts are always the victims of abuse, and addiction is far more common in our society than we want to admit.Next, Mary Karr's first memoir was The Liar's Club and a best-seller. The new one is called Lit and chronicles her alcoholism and alcoholic family. She talks with Steve Paulson. Then, Marshall Boswell, author of Understanding David Foster Wallace recalls that writer's fictional take on Alcoholics Anonymous. After that, Dr. Olivier Ameisen was a cardiologist until his alcoholism left his life in tatters. He found relief with a drug that eliminates his cravings for alcohol. But it's an old drug, so there's no profit incentive to research this new use. He tells the story to Anne Strainchamps, and in his book The End of My Addiction. It's now out in paperback under the title Heal Thyself.Finally, Jason Spingarn-Koff is a film-maker whose new documentary is called Life 2.0. It tells the stories of several people who immerse themselves in the Second Life computer game – some to the point where they confuse their game life with their real life.

She talks with Jim Fleming abut how she went from a career on Wall Street to the comedy club circuit and what her Iranian mother (who's a dentist) thinks of it. And we hear bits from her act.Then, Christopher Caldwell talks with Steve Paulson about the European discomfort with the rising tide of Muslim immigration. Devout Muslims pose particular challenges for the largely secular European societies as their native populations age and decline. Caldwell's book is Reflections on the Revolution in Europe: Immigration, Islam and the West. After that, Senegalese pop star Youssou N'Dour is the top-selling African musician of all time. His album Egypt moved away from the raucous sounds of pop and was devoted to his faith. N'Dour is a devout Sufi Muslim. Film-maker Chai Vasarhelyi followed Youssou N'Dour and his band after the album came out and produced a documentary called I Bring What I Love. Anne Strainchamps talks with the film-maker and musician right after the film opened in New York. Egypt won a Grammy in 2005. We hear clips from Egypt and from the film.And finally, Hollywood screenwriter Kamran Pasha has written a novel called Mother of Believers.

We all know Tom and Ray's dismal record diagnosing car problems, so this week on Car Talk we find out how they did with something a little smaller - a bread maker. Jeff from New Mexico is back for a round of Stump the Chumps to tell us if the Magliozzi recipe made his loaves come out looking less like hockey pucks. Elsewhere, Vivek is puzzled by the puddle that forms under his seat when he uses his air conditioner; Leslie's husband told her she's ruining her car by not straightening the wheels when she parks; and Kirsten wants to know what questions to ask the guys who will be storing her Honda while she goes to Kosovo for two years. Our first question? Can Tommy sleep in it when his wife throws him out of the house. All this and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: August 10, 2013] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Magliozzi, Ray Magliozzi. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/cart/130810/rt_cart_130810_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
