    Keeping Journalism - and Journalists - Alive with Elisa Lees Muñoz

    For journalists, it’s a jungle out there - both in the actual jungle and, increasingly, in Anytown USA. So we’ve got Elisa Lees Muñoz of the International Women’s Media Foundation here to tell us how to train journalists to serve (all of us) and protect (themselves!). And then it’s time to wrap your brains around a fresh new set of conundrums - it’s the return of the Poundstone Riddle Invitational!

    Michelangelo: The Naked Truth

    Michelangelo: The Naked Truth

    Lately we’ve been partying like it’s 1499 - in that certain works of art are STILL too hot to handle. But was Michelangelo’s “David” always scandalous? And what was our favorite ninja turtle’s namesake really like? Professor and Michelangelo scholar William Wallace is here to enlighten us. Or, um, renaissance us. And then - you loved our chaotic maiden voyage, and now it’s time for the return of Paula’s Fact-Finding Fiesta!
