    The Monitor dipped into broadcasting back in the late 1920s, and then went international via shortwave the following decade. It continued doing audio and in 2018, launched three podcast series. Now we’re poised to lean in more. Why? Audio can be convenient and engaging, heads up, and hands free. It can also be deeply affecting. Audio delivers emotional intimacy. It humanizes. Also: today’s stories, including a look back at the life of Colin Powell, how a dam removal marks a win for environmentalists and Native Americans, the way that polish witches are bringing joy and comfort to their community.

Also: today’s stories, including a look at executive privilege in the wake of the Jan. 6 riot, how Éléonore Laloux is helping France see disability differently, and a day in Joshua Tree National Park.
