Last Show Recap

In the first half, analyst Craig Hulet offered commentary on current events, terrorism, and world conflicts. "It looks to me unbelievably clear that money is going to buy the presidency, and Jeb Bush will be the next president," he declared.

In the latter half, broadcast and print journalist Gary Grossman discussed his research into the chasm between deep time (the scientific estimate that Earth is 4.6 billion years old) and a young Earth (the claim that the planet is only 7-8,000 years old put forth by some religious groups), which serves as the backdrop for his new novel.

Biography:

Former FBI Special Agent Thomas McShane is one of the world's foremost authorities on the billion-dollar art theft business. For the past 36 years, he has chased down $900 million worth of stolen paintings and other invaluable artifacts, returning them to a glittering list of museums, governments, and individual collectors. From Rembrandts taken from The Leon Bonnat Museum in Bayonne, France, to van Goghs snatched from the Armand Hammer Galleries across from Trump Plaza in New York, Thomas McShane was the man called upon to bring these world treasures back to their rightful owners. McShane joined the FBI in late 1968 after graduating from Fordham Law School. Randomly assigned to the New York field office's art division, he took night classes on the classics at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Sotheby's auction house. McShane's expertise, combined with his steel nerves, prompted then FBI Director William H. Webster to name him senior investigator of the FBI's elite Art Squad. McShane is currently an attorney specializing in museum security, forgery exposure, and art theft recovery.
