The Guys Next Door (#304) Duration: 56:46 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Erik and Sandra, like many married couples, hope to become parents. Their friend Rachel decides she can help by becoming a surrogate for them - even though Rachel and her husband Tony have three biological children of their own. As Erik and Sandro's two daughters grow older, the two fathers face the challenges of parenthood. Is nature or nurture going to define who these children grow up to be? Shot over three years, The Guys Next Door is story that redefines choice, generosity, and what it means to be a family in today's America.

The Mayors of Shiprock (#305) Duration: 56:46 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Meet The Mayors of Shiprock - that's what some people call The Northern Dine Youth Committee. These young Navajo leaders meet every week to learn about their Native culture, discuss community improvements, and work to bridge divides within their community. Some on the reservation say they don't have the traditional knowledge and language needed to be real leaders... but the Mayors are not stopping.

Veterans Coming Home: Stories of Service (#209) Duration: 26:51 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Three documentary shorts from the Veterans Coming Home look at challenges our veterans face when they leave the military, and why their struggles matter to veterans and civilians alike.
In "Veteran's Court", an innovative court of law in Phoenix that also serves as rehabilitation to keep vets who've been incarcerated from returning to jail.
"A Veteran Fights Homelessness in San Francisco" is one man's personal mission to help vets with no place to call home - a reality he knows all too well.
And in "Veteran's Bond", the powerful ties soldiers have to one another, from two Afghanistan veterans who reconnect years after combat.
These stories reveal the continuing courage of our veterans long after military service ends.

Veterans Coming Home: Military/Civilian Divide (#208) Duration: 26:46 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

Four documentary shorts from the Veterans Coming Home project look at the military-civilian divide in America. "Recruiting in Times Square" goes inside the recruitment process, and the unlikely candidates who enlist, including new Americans. "From War to the Happiest Place on Earth" features an Army veteran who has a picture perfect life and job but wrestles with the demons of post-traumatic stress disorder. "Invisible Wounds" explores the trauma of military sexual assault, and one survivor who seeks justice and healing. And it's not easy being a queer pacifist Vietnam veteran in "LGBT Rights and Vets for Peace." These stories reflect the diverse post-war experience of our veterans, as civilians ask how we can truly support our troops.
