    Globe Trekker [#1119] Turkey Adela Ucar encounters whirling dervishes and tranquil tea gardens in Konya, treks along the Lycian Way, relaxes on the sun-kissed beaches of Myra, visits the Sabanci Mosque and samples exquisite cuisine in Adana, explores the bustling bazaars and cafe culture of Gaziantep and experiences Kurdish culture in the basalt-walled city of Divarbakr. duration 56:41   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: DVI)

    Revolutionaries [#102H] Reality Is Broken Why Games Make us Better and How They Can Change the World. Author Dr. Jane McGonigal in conversation with NPR's Laura Sydell. duration 53:05   STEREO TVG
  • 2:00 am
    Moyers & Company [#133H] Nuns, Faith, and Politics Weeks before Republican Paul Ryan was selected to run for vice president, Sister Simone Campbell - who heads Network, a Catholic policy and lobbying group - hit the road to protest the so-called "Ryan budget" recently passed by the House of Representatives. She and some of her sister nuns rolled across the heartland on a bus trip designed to arouse public concern over what the Ryan plan would mean for social services in America, especially its slashing of programs for the poor. Sister Simone says his budget is inconsistent with Catholic social teaching. The US Conference of Catholic Bishops agrees.
    But other Catholics say Sister Simone and the nuns have crossed the line, becoming too outspoken and political. Robert Royal, editor in chief of The Catholic Thing and founder of the Faith & Reason Institute, believes that issues of economic inequality are being oversimplified. Royal says the focus should be on creating a more dynamic economy for all.
    It's one of the hottest issues of this overheated summer. Watch our field report from producers who rode along on the "Nuns on the Bus" tour, then join a passionate, candid discussion with Sister Simone and Royal.

    Afghanistan: The Surge If you want to know why the Afghanistan war has been so frustrating and seemingly without progress, watch this film. In it we see a platoon of skilled, motivated Marines filled with the best of intentions sent to a remote outpost to eliminate Taliban influence. It didn't work out that way. The Taliban didn't stand and fight. Instead, using simple IEDs, they crippled Marine mobility and kept Marines hemmed into a narrow valley while the Taliban ran things from its untouchable headquarters only eight miles from the Marine outpost. At a time when the Afghanistan war will be a central part of the presidential election, this film can be a part of that conversation. duration 1:56:46   STEREO TVPG

    Long Road Home Exploring the impact of wartime Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), this program offers compelling stories of Pittsburgh-area military veterans of Vietnam, Korea and World War II still coming to terms with the emotional wounds of war. It explores successful therapies and documents the promising research underway at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, where doctors study the sleep and brain patterns of PTSD sufferers and examine the reasons why women are twice as likely as men to develop the disorder. The film concludes on a hopeful note, with a visit to a weekend retreat for veterans dealing with PTSD and combat stress. United by their experiences, the former servicemen and women discuss their feelings, their struggles in civilian life, their need for closure and their optimism for the future. duration 58:46   STEREO TVPG

    Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly [#1552Z] FAITH, POLITICS, AND THE NATIONAL CATHEDRAL - We talk with Rev. Frank Wade, interim dean of the Washington National Cathedral, about the value of cathedrals in a 21st century world and the role a cathedral can play in helping the nation understand the relationship between faith and politics.
    TONY BLAIR FAITH FOUNDATION - The former British prime minister converted to Catholicism and established a foundation to address issues of faith and globalization. "The big issue of our time," according to Blair, "is trying to deal with extremism based on a perversion of religion, and how you get peaceful coexistence between people of different faiths and cultures."
    LDS PAGEANT - It's the 75th anniversary of the annual Hill Cumorah Pageant near Palmyra, New York, a lavish outdoor theatrical production of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, based on the Book of Mormon. RENW visited a performance last month and spoke with artistic director Brent Hanson.
