    #213 Rocky Talk - Fact-Based Journalism in an Age of Suspicion

    #213 Rocky Talk - Fact-Based Journalism in an Age of Suspicion

    This episode's guest is Alissa Johannsen Rubin an International Correspondent for the The New York Times.

    Have we lost our commonly held point of departure for thinking about current events, science, health care, and culture? As a country we do not agree on the fundamentals so often -- not always -- journalists are under attack even before they embark on their reporting. How can journalists preserve the credibility they have and gain back ground? New York Times International Correspondent Alissa Rubin offers lessons drawn from Bernard Nossiter and recent history.

    #212 Rocky Talk - Drug Court: Where Justice Meets Treatment

    #212 Rocky Talk - Drug Court: Where Justice Meets Treatment

    This episode's guest is Tina Nadeau, Chief Justice of the New Hampshire Superior Court. She is The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center's Perkins Bass Distinguished Visitor.

    Incarceration does not treat substance use disorder, it cultivates it. As NH and the nation face a crippling opioid epidemic, Chief Justice Tina Nadeau explains that if we want to increase public safety, reduce the cost of incarceration, and return offenders to the community as productive members, we need to invest in alternatives to incarceration. 70%-80% of those appearing in Superior Court with felony offenses suffer from substance use disorder or mental illness, and often times both. They have spent time in prison and jail without any improvement in their conditions and when released resort to the same behavior that resulted in their incarceration in the first place. One alternative – drug court – has proven effective in treating the underlying conditions that result in criminal behavior. The result? Graduates of drug court reoffend at a significantly lower rate than their incarcerated counterparts and have learned the skills it takes to manage a long-term, chronic relapsing condition, often for the first time in their lives.

    #210 Rocky Talk - Conservatism: What It Is, How We Lost It, and How We Find It Again

    #210 Rocky Talk - Conservatism: What It Is, How We Lost It, and How We Find It Again

    This episode's guest is Oren Cass, Executive Director of American Compass.

    What makes the dogma of American conservatism so peculiar is its lack of any discernible conservatism. Tax cuts and more tax cuts, with some free trade mixed in, may or may not be good policy, but they are not conservative in any meaningful sense of the word. America’s challenges in the 21st century are different than those of prior generations, from great-power competition with China and monopolies in the technology sector to failing communities and rising inequality. Neither the libertarian faith in markets nor the progressive reliance on redistribution will solve such problems, indeed it helped to create them. Conservatives, with their appreciation for the nation-state, the rules, and institutions necessary to well-functioning markets, and the strength of the social fabric, have a vital role to play, if they can reassert themselves. Oren Cass will discuss what conservatism is, how we lost it, and the prospects for finding it again in the post-Trump political landscape.

    #209 Rocky Talk - Apollo’s Arrow: The Profound and Enduring Impact of Coronavirus on the Way We Live

    #209 Rocky Talk - Apollo’s Arrow: The Profound and Enduring Impact of Coronavirus on the Way We Live

    This episode's guest is Nicholas Christakis, Sterling Professor of Social and Natural Science, at Yale University.

    Apollo's Arrow offers a broad account of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic as it swept through American society in 2020 and of how the pandemic will unfold, and ultimately end, in the coming years. Using up-to-the-moment information, and drawing on epidemiology, sociology, medicine, public health, history, virology, and other fields, it explores what it means to live in a time of plague — an experience that is paradoxically uncommon to the vast majority of humans who are alive, yet deeply fundamental to our species. Unleashing new divisions in our society as well as new opportunities for cooperation, this 21st-century pandemic has upended our lives in ways that test our frayed collective culture. Apollo's Arrow envisions what happens when the great force of a deadly germ meets the enduring reality of our evolved social nature.
