    It's Your World (a broadcast of the World Affairs Council) Cuba: Paradox Island The last four years, in comparison to the previous 50, have seen considerable change in Cuba. In 2008, Fidel Castro stepped aside to allow his brother Raul to lead. At the same time, after a period of tight travel restrictions, the United States has made it easier for Cuban-Americans to visit family and for Americans to travel legally to Cuba on cultural exchanges. This fall, President Raul Castro announced an impending end to much-reviled exit visas Cubans must obtain in order to leave their own country legally for travel or work. These changes, along with experimental encouragement of private enterprise within Cuba, have renewed interest in the country and its relationship with the United States. The program's guest is Cynthia Gorney, a contributing writer for National Geographic Magazine who visited the island earlier this year.

    Morning Edition Let's Talk About Faith A third of young Americans say they don't belong to any religion. But they're not all atheists or agnostics. Many are struggling with the role of faith in their lives. They agree with some beliefs and traditions but not others.

    Forum New State Parks Director Anthony Jackson Last year, the California Department of Parks and Recreation solicited hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations to help save parks which were allegedly in dire straits -- until a $54 million surplus was found hidden in the department's budget. The scandal prompted then-director Ruth Coleman to resign in July. Now, retired Marine Corps major general Anthony Jackson has taken over her post and hopes to set the 280-park system back on the right path.

    Forum Calif. Weighs New Gun Control Bills A spate of new gun control bills are being introduced in the California Legislature, in the wake of the tragic school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. California already has the strictest gun control laws in the country. The new laws, if passed, would further regulate the sale and purchase of ammunition, ban mentally ill people from purchasing guns and impose other restrictions. We discuss California's new approaches to gun control. Have such laws been effective in preventing violence?

    Science Friday Global Hotspots: What's at Stake? In Mali, the French military fights Islamist militants with air strikes, and awaits the arrival of an African force to help battle the al Qaida-linked rebels. And in Aleppo, Syrian government fighters and rebels trade fire, but neither side makes much progress. The program explores what's at stake in hotspots around the world.

    New York Passes New Gun Laws -- New York could be the first state to pass new gun control laws since the tragic shootings in Newtown, Conn., just over a month ago. Supporters hailed the regulations as the toughest in the nation. But the speed with which the law came together left gun rights advocates livid.

    City Arts & Lectures Tim Ferriss The program's guest is Tim Ferriss, start-up angel investor, blogger and entrepreneur. He is best-known for his first book "The 4-Hour Workweek," a how-to-guide about outsourcing work and other aspects of life. Ferriss followed-up on the phenomenal international success of that debut with "The 4-Hour Body." That book combines the advice of athletes and doctors with personal experimentation to outline a lifestyle plan that aims to elevate metabolism and overall strength -- and even train the body to function well on two hours sleep per day. Ferriss is a guest lecturer at Princeton University, where he has spoken on high-tech entrepreneurship since 2003. His newest book, "The 4-Hour Chef," includes recipes based on his nutritional and time-saving philosophy. Ferriss appeared in conversation with Phil Bronstein on December 6, 2012.

    All Things Considered Yet Another Bush? George Prescott Bush, son of Jeb Bush, is getting into elective politics. He's running for office in Texas -- though he's not sure which one. And he's already raised more than $1 million.

    All Things Considered What's Next for Al-Qaida Terrorists in Mali? Those who have been fighting al-Qaida for a decade have learned never to underestimate the group's affiliates. The groups may start out with local agendas, but they eventually morph into jihadists with global ambitions. The U.S. learned that lesson on Christmas Day four years ago when al-Qaida's arm in Yemen put a suicide bomber on a plane bound for Detroit. Now al-Qaida has affiliates in Mali, and the U.S. is watching closely. So far, Al-Qaida's arm there has focused on fighting government troops, but that could change.
