Sphere of Influence: Russia's Foreign Policy (#601) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

Putin's pushback against European expansionism has the West wondering: If Putin's Russia isn't afraid to take an aggressive stance against Ukraine's pivot to the West, what does that mean for the rest of Russia's neighbors?

The Tradeoff: Privacy in a Digital World (#602) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

The idea of "privacy" has undergone significant changes in the digital age, as has the idea of privacy "harm." Concerns about what some see as a U.S. "dragnet" and unwarranted privacy intrusions have compelled other countries to revamp their own privacy protections. Legislation, both at home and abroad, hasn't kept pace with technological developments, leaving some wondering if privacy as we know it is long dead.

The Great Divide: Sunni Vs Shia (#603) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

From the crisis in Iraq and Syria to the tension between Iran and Saudi Arabia, the struggle between Sunni and Shi'i groups for dominance is tearing apart the region and shows no signs of abating. How does sectarianism fit into a larger narrative of the Middle East? How have governments manipulated sectarian differences? And finally, what is the U.S. doing about it?

India Rising (#604) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

Inspired by its "top-down" model for growth, the world's largest democracy has started taking its cues from China, one of America's economic rivals. It's a mindset that led to Modi's election in 2014, and has signaled the developing economy's desire for real change. Now, it's up to the U.S. to determine how to best secure its interests as India asserts itself on the world stage.

    • KQED Plus OTA – Optimistically planned maintenance: Fri 12/05 mid-morning

    • Mon 11/03/14: Work on KQED Plus tower (DT54)

      Another station needs to do maintenance on its equipment on the tower on Monument Peak, requiring that we switch our DT54 Over the Air signal from the main antenna to the auxiliary when the work starts, then back to the main antenna at the conclusion.
