Datei Datum Inhalt Dauer
#607 06.01 Didn’t We Solve This One? We’ve fought two wars since 9/11. We got help from tens of thousands of Iraqis and Afghans—some were targeted or killed because they helped us. We owe these people. We’ve passed laws that say so. So why has it been so hard for us to get many of them to safety? 63:58
#608 20.01 The Revolution Starts At Noon Some people are super-stoked for the political changes that are coming. We hear from them. And others. 67:56
#609 03.02 It’s Working Out Very Nicely This week we document what happened when the President’s executive order went into effect temporarily banning travel from seven countries, and we talk about the way it was implemented. A major policy change thrown into the world like a fastball with no warning. It’s hard not to ask: “What just happened? What was that all about?” 63:11
#610 17.02 Grand Gesture This week we have stories of people going to very extreme measures to demonstrate their feelings. Elna Baker makes a questionable trip to Africa, while a man in Florida commits a series of disturbing acts in the name of love. Ira also goes to a high school to talk to kids before a dance. 61:10
#611 03.03 Vague and Confused A show about rules and what happens when they’re vague and randomly enforced. 65:28
#612 17.03 Ask a Grown-Up Stories from people who need a grown-up. Featuring teenage girls asking for advice about their love lives and Ira's tribute to his very grown-up friend Mary. 64:10
#613 31.03 OK, I’ll Do It Stories of people who decide that they are the best person for the job, no matter how dangerous. Including a story about a stay-at-home mom with a history of gun running for a guerilla organization, and a surgeon who does surgery...on himself. 63:35
#614 14.04 The Other Mr. President Since Russia meddled in our election, there's been concern that the fake news and disinformation that's so prevalent there could be taking hold in this country. But is that hyperbole? This week we look at what it's actually like to live in the confusing information landscape that is Putin's Russia. 66:23
#615 28.04 The Beginning of Now Before Donald Trump started his presidential campaign in 2015, there was a congressional race that redefined what was possible in American politics. Steve Bannon and Breitbart News got involved in that race early, just like they later got deeply involved Donald Trump's race. On this week’s show: What happened in that campaign, what it made it work, and how we got to now. 60:06
#616 05.05 I Am Not A Pirate To be, or not to be a pirate? This week, that is the question. Hold fast, mateys! We have stories about both historical and modern-day swashbucklers who loot, pillage, and question their choices. 68:20
#617 19.05 Fermi’s Paradox Three people grapple with the question, “Are we alone?” 60:23
#618 09.06 Mr. Lie Detector A polygraph operator and his strange journey. And other stories. 61:32
#619 30.06 The Magic Show Just a few years before he got the internship at NPR that started him in radio, our host Ira Glass had another career. He performed magic at children's birthday parties. A powerful sense of embarrassment has prevented him from ever doing an episode on the subject, but when he learned that producer David Kestenbaum was also a kid conjurer, they decided to dive in together. 60:20
#620 14.07 To Be Real Most of the time, we show the world a pretty superficial version of ourselves. "How about that weather?" But this week—people who try to go deeper, to get to something real, in some unexpected places: war, magic and porn. 60:48
#621 21.07 Fear and Loathing in Homer and Rockville Two towns where people got really upset about undocumented immigrants, even though in both places, that did not seem to be the most important thing happening at all. One of the towns, a small town in Alaska, has no undocumented immigrants at all, but the possibility of them arriving put the whole town at each other’s throats. 64:07
#622 04.08 Who You Gonna Call? When everything goes wrong, one of the first things we think is, "Who do I call?" This week, stories of lucky people who have found the exact right person to ring up for help. 62:19
#623 18.08 We Are in the Future One of our producers, Neil Drumming, has recently become fascinated with Afrofuturism. It's more than sci-fi. It’s a way of looking at black culture that’s fantastic, creative, and oddly hopeful—which feels especially urgent during a time without a lot of optimism. 59:41
#624 01.09 Private Geography Everyone walks around on their own private map of the world. The places we’re from and how they made us, whether we like it or not. 60:50
#625 08.09 Essay B In 1967, the first two black students were enrolled at an all-white private boarding school in Virginia. The main reason they were there? To benefit the white kids. This week: stories about being enlisted to benefit another person’s educational experience. A version of this story appears in The New York Times Magazine. 60:48
#626 22.09 White Haze Right-wing groups like the Proud Boys say they have no tolerance for racism or white supremacist groups. Their leader Gavin McInnes disavowed the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville. But the Proud Boys believe “the West is the best,” which, one of them points out, is not such a big jump from “whites are best.” And one of the Proud Boys organized the Charlottesville rally. (The group now claims he was a spy.) What should we make of groups like this? 61:30
#627 06.10 Suitable for Children This week we ask: who thought that would be good for a kid? Neil Drumming looks back at a toy he loved that, in retrospect, probably wouldn’t love him back. And we go to a museum that educates children but also scares the hell out of them. 61:12
#628 13.10 In the Shadow of the City 2017 Stories that take place on the edge of civilization, just out of sight. 58:41
