    All Things Considered Peter Rabbit Obit Commentator Andrei Codrescu remembers Peter Douthit, known as Peter Rabbit, who helped start one of the Southwest's earliest communes and the Taos Poetry Circus. He died from liver cancer on Oct. 27, at his home in Taos, New Mexico. He was 76. Codrescu knew Douthit and was a two-time winner of the Heavyweight Poetry Championship in Taos. He says his death signals the inevitable disappearance of a wildly spontaneous generation.

    Radio Specials The Anthropology of Innovation The 21st century world is marked by a profound paradox. On one hand we are more interconnected than ever before, in the sense that we now live and operate in systems that are tightly entwined. But on the other, we also live at a time of great intellectual and social polarization -- and social media is making some of this fracture worse, by encouraging the development of intellectual echo chambers. This phenomenon inside organizations can often be deadly. The financial industry is a case in point. But groups or people who can jump across boundaries and categories are often extremely innovative. What do anthropologists have to say about these intellectual echo chambers, or "silos" today? How can organizations silo-bust effectively? Moderator, award-winning journalist and anthropologist Gillian Tett talks with panelists including Intel's Genevieve Bell and Laura D Tyson and George Kembel of the Stanford d.school.

    Forum A Supermajority for California Democrats For the first time in almost 80 years, one political party now controls two-thirds of both California legislative houses. This supermajority will allow Democrats to raise taxes, override vetoes by the governor and put constitutional reforms before voters. But as Governor Jerry Brown noted, "desires are endless." So which desires will be fulfilled? Will it be giving back dental care to 3 million poor Californians, or restoring slashed funding to state courts? And can a supermajority fix California's dysfunction?

    Commonwealth Club Fighting Patient Mistreatment in America The program's guest is Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer and executive vice president of the American Cancer Society and co-author of "How We Do Harm: A Doctor Breaks Ranks About Being Sick in America." Finance, Brawley asserts, is inextricably linked to health care in America's current system. Even the very procedures patients undergo, he says, are frequently determined more by doctors' expected payment for performing them than their actual appropriateness in mitigating the ailment with which the patient is afflicted. Brawley will discuss the extent of this problem as well as possible solutions with moderator Lisa Aliferis, KQED's health editor.
