Poetry In Motion (#110) Duration: 27:13 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Storytelling with a kick! The words, sounds and people that bring poetry to life - a painful story about bullying; powerful memories of a soon-to-be demolished housing project; inaccurate assumptions about a pretty face; coming to terms and acceptance with loss; and the melting pot of identity politics. Five pieces from cities across the USA, including San Francisco, Detroit, Chicago and Minneapolis, that are connected by the rhythm of words and the search for identity.

Urban Gardening (#111) Duration: 27:18 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Sowing the Seeds of Change... planting ideas for sustainability and self-sufficiency. You might think of it as a Midwest rust belt town, but community gardeners in Flint, Michigan are undergoing a variety of projects and planting the seeds of hope for economic revitalization. From green belts to green thumbs -- a couple works with children to hone their martial arts and gardening skills; and two women toil with the local Flint government to get their garden growing.

An examination of the terrifying syndrome that's all too common among U.S. veterans returning from combat zones: a devastating injury pushes one former soldier into the dark; the family of a Navy Seal tells his tragic story; a woman rebuilds her post-war life; and a program at the City College of San Francisco committed to rehabbing veterans.

Drive Like A Girl (#113) Duration: 26:41 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

This documentary follows New York's champion all-girls robotics team, The Iron Maidens, just one year after they beat more than 60 male-dominated teams in a regional competition. Though they advanced to the national stage in Atlanta, GA, they lost before winning it all. Now, they've returned for another shot at the title. They had six weeks to design, program and build a robot alongside their brother team and one of their competitors, the Sciborgs. The struggles they face reveal what it takes to be a group of girls excelling at a boys' game and their successes are a glimpse at the changing roles of females in science and technology.

Upcoming Broadcasts:
