Political Junkie Looks West The Political Junkie is turning his analytical gaze west. Ken Rudin, known to NPR listeners from his many years talking all things politics with Neal Conan on "Talk of the Nation," joins Insight host Beth Ruyak for a new signature segment that puts California politics in the context of the national scene. Rudin joins us from Washington D.C. in effort to put it all in perspective.

Cyber Monday Shoppers spent less this Black Friday than last year, but it remains to be seen if those sales will be made up this Cyber Monday. As sales from the weekend carry over into the start of the week (and online), retailers may be making a good chunk of their money today. Sonya Sorich is the social engagement manager and a staff writer at the Sacramento Business Journal. She joins us to explain how the Sacramento region will feel the impact of Cyber Monday sales.

"Seed of the Future" Emmy Award-winning writer and documentary filmmaker, Dayton Duncan, has a beautiful new book about the history of Yosemite National Park and the creation of the national park system. "Seed of the Future: Yosemite and the Evolution of the National Park Idea" features a compelling narrative, accompanied by archival images and full-color landscape photographs, that tells the story of how the world learned of Yosemite, flocked to it, nearly destroyed it and finally saved it. "Seed of the Future" will be published November 26, just ahead of Yosemite's 150th anniversary in 2014. Duncan joins us to discuss his new book and his continued focus on the America's national parks.
