Sat, Mar 2, 2013 -- 1:00 PM Radiolab

Inheritance -- Once a kid is born, their genetic fate is pretty much sealed. Or is it? Radiolab puts nature and nurture on a collision course, and discovers how outside forces can find a way inside us, shaping not just our hearts and minds, but the basic biological blueprint that we pass on to future generations.

Fri, Mar 1, 2013 -- 2:00 AM American RadioWorks

An Imperfect Revolution: Voices From the Desegregation Era -- The 1970s saw a tidal change in American race relations. For the first time, large numbers of white, black and other children of color began attending school together. It was an experience that shaped them for life. Using first-person accounts of the era of "forced busing," the program explores the ways school desegregation changed the nation.

Thu, Feb 28, 2013 -- 2:00 AM Intelligence Squared U.S.

Should We Prohibit Genetically Engineered Babies? -- Parents can already screen a fetus for its sex and test for genetic diseases. The day when they can choose their child's height, eye color and intelligence may be closer than we think. Is this a form of eugenics? Is it morally wrong for parents to engineer their babies, or is it morally wrong to deprive their children of the benefits of genetic enhancement? The Oxford-style debate program takes up these questions and more.
