The Source: Tweets From The Divine & Women In Combat
In the first segment:
What would it be like if God updated any of his opinions in the current vernacular?
The Tweet of God brings you the latest and greatest from the divine, from God memoirist and social satirist David Javerbaum.
Javerbaum joins us to talk about his time on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," and his popular book "The Last Testament," an imagined memoir of God. The book draws from the runaway success of his Twitter account, The Tweet of God.

In the second segment:
As the military opens the opportunity of combat roles to women, looking at the issues that affect our servicewomen when they arrive back grows more important.
Among other things, women are affected by PTSD at a rate two to four times that of their male counterparts. The new documentary "When Women Come Marching Home" takes a clear-eyed, intimate look at the issues our female veterans are dealing with in and out of the service.
"I no longer have any faith or hope that the military chain of command will consistently prosecute, convict, sentence, and carryout the sentencing of sexual predators in uniform without absconding justice somehow," said one of the subjects of the film, BriGette McCoy, to the Senate Subcommittee on Armed Forces.
McCoy joins us along with director and editor Marcia Rock. The documentary is being screened at Texas A&M Friday, May 3 and can be seen on KLRN Monday, May 6 at 10 p.m.
