An interview with Bradley University professor Jackie Hogan, who wrote a book about how we commercialize the legacy of Abraham Lincoln.

We introduce the show's topic, the commercialization of Abraham Lincoln and his legacy, and interview Jackie Hogan, author of the book "Lincoln Inc.: Selling the 16th President in Contemporary America." We discuss the ways in which Lincoln's legacy has been used to make money, even if it takes a few white lies. Also included is Kevin Kizer's literary segment. This week he discusses the top holiday book titles according to Barnes & Noble, including a couple that may surprise you.
