*State of the Union Religious Reaction - After President Obama outlined his vision for the nation in this week's State of the Union address, Host Bob Abernethy talks with Managing Editor Kim Lawton and Religion News Service Editor-in-Chief Kevin Eckstrom about what people of faith think of the president's proposals.
*Halki Seminary - One of the longest-standing priorities on the US international religious freedom agenda is the reopening of the Theological School Halki in Turkey. Once the world's leading Eastern Orthodox seminary, Halki was shut down by the Turkish government in 1971. Managing Editor Kim Lawton looks at the ongoing international campaign to see it reopened.
*Singer/Songwriter and Spiritual Seeker Bruce Cockburn - At 69, the Canadian musician has been described as a combination of Bob Dylan and Gandhi. Over his 50-year career he has produced 31 albums and received numerous awards.

KQED World: Sat, Jan 10, 2015 -- 3:00 AM

*Social Media Ethics - Some social media companies including Facebook have run surreptitious experiments to learn what influences user behavior. These secret studies trouble both social media users and privacy advocates, who worry that the research and use of personal information is unethical.
*Raising Children in Two Faiths - Can interfaith families successfully observe the religious traditions of more than one faith? How do interfaith couples decide which faith their children should adopt? "We both wanted to keep our own religions and our own identity for ourselves, so we knew from the beginning that we didn?'t want our children to be just one of our faiths," says Amy Schombs, who is Jewish and whose husband is Catholic.
*Orthodox Epiphany - For Eastern Christians, celebrating the Feast of the Epiphany means marking the appearance or manifestation of Jesus. In Western churches, the holiday emphasizes the visit of the wise men to the infant Jesus. But Orthodox churches focus on Jesus?' baptism in the Jordan River.
