Today, on the Ed Morrissey Show (3 pm ET), we have a great lineup, especially considering the events of recent days. First, we have Joshua Muravchik to speak about his book The Next Founders, which profiles seven activists attempting to spread democracy in the Middle East. We’ll find out who they are, and how that fits with the events in Iran over the last two weeks. In the second half, Col. Oliver North joins us to talk about his new book, American Heroes, which tells tales of bravery on the battlefields of the war on terror that haven’t made it to the mainstream media.

Jim Geraghty will join us tomorrow.
