    All Things Considered The Pope and the Economy The new Pope is both an anti-Marxist who opposed leftist political movements and a humble friend of the poor who has criticized global capitalism. In fact, his positions are in line with those of his predecessors on economic matters -- suspicious of any ideology that views humans as economic actors alone. However, many who follow the church say he will be better than Pope Benedict at getting the Church's message across on economic issues.

    It's Your World (a broadcast of the World Affairs Council) Resilience and Transformation in Haiti From Haiti's revolutionary history, to its totalitarian dynasty that ruled for decades, to the 2010 earthquake, this island nation has become synonymous with poverty and dysfunction. Yet through it all shines a people's creative culture and resilience. During her three decades covering the country, journalist and Haitian expert Amy Wilentz has seen Haitians overcome all kinds of hardship. Still struggling to rebuild from the 2010 earthquake, Haiti now finds itself awash with well-meaning, and sometimes misguided, characters: movie stars turned aid workers, musicians running for president, and a former US president working as a house builder. Wilentz will explore the evolution of Haiti's vibrant culture and dysfunctional government.

    Forum The Golden Gate Bridge Switches to Electronic Payments On Wednesday, the Golden Gate Bridge will become the first in California to accept only electronic payment for bridge tolls, either with FasTrak, a license plate account or through pre-payments. We discuss what the changes mean for commuters and tourists, and we talk with a soon-to-be-unemployed toll taker about the end of the era of personal service on the iconic bridge.

    Forum Student Loan Interest Rate Set to Rise The current student loan debt totals $1 trillion. It's the biggest worry among college-bound high school students, according to a recent Princeton Review Survey. They may have even more to worry about starting July 1, when the interest rate for subsidized student loans jumps to nearly 7 percent, unless Congress acts. Is there a better plan for students to manage, or even lower, their overall debt? We talk to experts about options for dealing with student loans.

    Science Friday Race and Gun Policy As the debate on gun violence in the U.S. continues, the program looks at patterns of race and gun policy. If you're white and were killed by gunfire, you likely lived in a rural area, opposed strict gun control and committed suicide. If you're black and were killed by a gun, you were likely shot by someone else, lived in an urban area and supported gun control.

    City Arts & Lectures Jill Bolte Taylor: Stroke of Insight At the age of 37, Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor had a massive stroke and watched as her brain functions -- motion, speech, memory, linear thinking and self-awareness -- shut down one by one.

In her best-selling book "My Stroke of Insight," Bolte Taylor chronicles her recovery as well as her personal study of perception as it differs between left-brain processing and right-brain experiencing.

    All Things Considered Politics and the Supreme Court The program speaks with Mara Liasson about the politics of Tuesday's Supreme Court argument on same-sex marriage.
