    All Things Considered Farm Reform Fails Last year, a loose alliance of environmentalists, economists and critics of industrial agriculture pushed -- once again -- for fundamental changes in U.S. farm subsidies. They failed. Even minimal reforms got discarded by Congressional leaders in the rush to resolve the government's fiscal crisis. But some reformers are cheered by the fact that farm lobbyists also failed to get what they wanted -- a generous new Farm Bill.

    City Arts & Lectures Malcolm Gladwell & Adam Gopnik The author of four books and numerous New Yorker articles, Malcolm Gladwell brings astute observations and graceful prose to contemporary issues of sociology, psychology and culture. His books "The Tipping Point," "Blink" and "Outliers" all deal with human behavior and its cultural implications. Adam Gopnik has been writing for The New Yorker since 1986. His background in art history and broad and sophisticated perspective on culture make him a frequent and popular voice on many subjects. He has written fiction and humor pieces, book reviews, profiles, reporting pieces, and more than a hundred stories for "The Talk of the Town" and "Comment." His books, ranging from essay collections about Paris and food to children's novels, include "Paris to the Moon," "Angels and Ages: A Short Book About Darwin" and "Lincoln." Gladwell and Gopnik appeared in conversation on November 19, 2012.

    Morning Edition At Prestigious Colleges, a Lack of Disadvantaged Kids Some selective colleges try to attract disadvantaged students.

    Forum California Challenges Federal Oversight of Prisons Governor Jerry Brown has declared the prison emergency over in California. He has asked a federal court to lift the population cap it imposed on state prisons, and to remove federal oversight of inmate medical care. The governor says California has done enough to improve conditions in its prisons, and that further reducing the population would jeopardize public safety. We analyze the state's progress on prison reform and discuss the best path forward.
