    A ‘Righteous Strike’

    A ‘Righteous Strike’

    When he visited the site of an American drone strike in Kabul, Matthieu Aikins, a Times journalist, knew something wasn’t adding up. He uncovered a story that was quite different from the one offered up by the United States military.

    We follow The Times’s investigation and how it forced the military to acknowledge that the drone attack was a mistake.

    Guest: Matthieu Aikins, a writer based in Afghanistan for The New York Times.

    One Family’s Fight Against the Dixie Fire

    One Family’s Fight Against the Dixie Fire

    Annie Correal, a reporter for The Times, has family in Indian Valley, in Northern California, roots which extend back to the 1950s.

    This summer, as wildfires closed in on the area, she reported from her family’s property as they sought to fend off the flames — and investigated the divided opinions about what had caused the devastating blazes.

    Guest: Annie Correal, a reporter covering New York City for The New York Times.

    The Sunday Read: ‘The Composer at the Frontier of Movie Music’

    The Sunday Read: ‘The Composer at the Frontier of Movie Music’

    You have almost certainly heard Nicholas Britell’s music, even if you don’t know his name. More than any other contemporary composer, he appears to have the whole of music history at his command, shifting easily between vocabularies, often in the same film.

    His most arresting scores tend to fuse both ends of his musical education. “Succession” is 18th-century court music married to heart-pounding beats; “Moonlight” chops and screws a classical piano-and-violin duet as if it’s a Three 6 Mafia track.

    Britell’s C.V. reads like the setup for a comedy flick: a Harvard-educated, world-class pianist who studied psychology and once played in a moderately successful hip-hop band, who wound up managing portfolios on Wall Street.

    That is until he started scoring movies, and quickly acquired Academy Award nominations.

    “What I’ve found in the past,” said Jon Burlingame, a film-music historian, “is that people have found it impossible to incorporate such modern musical forms as hip-hop into dramatic underscore for films. When Nick did it in ‘Moonlight,’ I was frankly stunned. I didn’t think it was possible.”

    A Broadway Show Comes Back to Life

    A Broadway Show Comes Back to Life

    This episode contains strong language.

    “Six,” a revisionist feminist British pop musical about the wives of King Henry VIII, was shaping up to be a substantial hit on Broadway after finding success in London.

    On its opening night, however, in March 2020, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a shutdown of theater that would wind up lasting a year and a half.

    We speak to the cast and crew of “Six” about the show’s path back to the stage and explore what it tells us about the trials of Broadway during the pandemic.

    Guest: Michael Paulson, a theater reporter for The New York Times.

    The United States v. Elizabeth Holmes

    The United States v. Elizabeth Holmes

    When Elizabeth Holmes founded Theranos, the blood testing start-up, she was held up as one of the next great tech innovators.

    But her company collapsed, and she was accused of lying about how well Theranos’s technology worked. Now she is on trial on fraud charges.

    The case against Ms. Holmes is being held up as a referendum on the “fake it till you make it” culture of Silicon Valley, but it’s also about so much more.

    Guest: Erin Griffith, a reporter covering technology start-ups and venture capital for The New York Times.

    Mexico’s Path to Legalizing Abortion

    Mexico’s Path to Legalizing Abortion

    In a major turn of events in Mexico, which has one of the largest Catholic populations in the world, its Supreme Court last week decriminalized abortions.

    The Supreme Court ruling is a milestone for Mexico’s feminist movement. But change might not come quickly: Abortion law is mostly administered at the state level in Mexico, much of the country remains culturally conservative, and many Mexican medical workers are morally opposed to abortion.

    In a country where polls indicate most people don’t believe that abortion should be legal, what effect will the ruling have in practice?

    Guest: Natalie Kitroeff, a correspondent covering Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean for The New York Times.
