Sat, Feb 15, 2014 -- 3:30 PM The Love Plan

For Valentine's Day, the show explores the languages of love in its many incarnations. We look for love inside a poem and inside a brothel - and we find love amongst the tales of twisted relationships and within the stories of couples growing old together.

New Leaders: A Black History Month Special -- Usually during Black History Month, we remember Civil Rights icons and reflect on their legacy. But over the past couple of years, the program has met a new generation of African-American leaders, people you may not see on TV specials or making nationally acclaimed speeches. Most of these men and women are on the front lines of their communities, rolling up their sleeves and diving into what can be very unglamorous work. The show introduces listeners to a new group of leaders, and what they're accomplishing in their various corners of America.
