To the Best of Our Knowledge

The Magic Book

Tonight at 8:00pm

Do you love books? Not just reading, but the physical book -- the book as an object. Maybe that's why we line them on shelves like totems. Perhaps it's why we pile them next to our beds in some hope that their magic will enter our dreams.

  • Police

On the Media

The Right to Record Police

Today at 2:00pm

While bystander cellphone videos can shed light on police misconduct, the right to film the cops is not always guaranteed. The show speaks with Jeff Hermes, lawyer and deputy director of the Media Law Resource Center, about the legal grey areas of our right to record.
