LucyChimps. Bonobos. Humans. We're all great apes, but that doesn't mean we're one happy family. The show features stories of apes and humans trying to live together. Is this kind of cross-species co-habitation an utterly stupid idea? Or might it be our one last hope as more and more humans fill up the planet?

Gavin Newsom on 'Citizenville' -- California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom sees a bright future for open-source America. The former San Francisco mayor's first book "Citizenville" tells of how ordinary citizens can use new digital tools to dissolve political gridlock and transform American democracy. Newsom joins moderator Michael Krasny to explain how the problems of 21st century America are too big and too expensive for the government to simply buy solutions. Instead, he says, we must innovate our way out. Just as the post office and the highway system provide public infrastructure to channel both personal and private enterprise -- a platform upon which citizens can grow -- so too could a modern digital government house the needs, concerns, information and collaboration of an enlightened digital citizenry.
