Managing Editor, Arkansas Public Media

Bobby Ampezzan is a native of Detroit who holds degrees from Dickinson College (Carlisle, PA) and the University of Arkansas (Fayetteville). He's written for The Guardian newspaper and Oxford American magazine and was a longtime staff writer for theArkansas Democrat-Gazette. The best dimestore nugget he's lately discovered comes from James Altucher's Choose Yourself(actually, the Times' profile on Altucher, which quotes the book): "I lose at least 20 percent of my intelligence when I am resentful." Meanwhile, his faith in public radio and television stems from the unifying philosophy that not everything be serious, but curiosity should follow every thing, and that we be serious about curiosity.

On this week's podcast:

-It's mostly about the Republican National Convention. How did some of Arkansas's delegates react to some of the major speeches?

-We also discuss the speeches of three Arkansans at the convention. How do their messages fit within the larger Republican worldview?

-The Arkansas Supreme Court denies a request by eight death row inmates for a rehearing, but gives them time to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
