Sarah Jessica Parker was the guest host for Leonard Lopate this week! 
She talked to Ashley Bouder and Sara Mearns, principal dancers with the New York City Ballet, about the demands and rewards  of dancing. (Did you know that SJP is a former ballet dancer?)
One time back in 2010, Christopher Walken filled in for Leonard Lopate as guest host. It was a riot.

Things we learned this week:

Pop-up books have evolved since you last looked at one.
