Sat, Dec 15, 2012 -- 1:00 PM "Here's the Thing" with Alec Baldwin

Herb Alpert and Chris Rock -- Alec goes backstage with comic actor Chris Rock after a matinee of "The Mother F**ker With The Hat" to hear what it was like for Rock to be in his first play.

Fri, Dec 14, 2012 -- 2:00 AM Intelligence Squared U.S.

Does Science Refute God? -- On the fundamental question of evolution or creation -- Americans are on the fence. According to one survey, while 61 percent of Americans believe we have evolved over time, 22 percent believe this evolution was guided by a higher power, with another 31 percent on the side of creationism. For some, modern science debunks many of religion's core beliefs. But for others, questions like "Why are we here?" and "How did it all come about?" can only be answered through a belief in the existence of God. Can science and religion co-exist?

Thu, Dec 13, 2012 -- 2:00 AM State of the RE:Union with Al Letson

Internet Communities - Making the Virtual Real -- At this point in the 21st century, the way we meet people, establish connections, maintain our relationships and fight for what we believe in has been radically transformed by the Internet. But often, when we're talking about these changes, the focus is either on pure enthusiasm about the limitless possibilities presented by the Web, or anxiety about online connections replacing physical ones. The show features stories of the Internet's impact on community-building in human terms, on the messy level of people's daily existence, where its effects are rarely solely positive or negative. These are stories of wholesale life transformations facilitated by the Internet and of the ways the "virtual" has turned into the "real" in people's lives.
