    Aspen Institute Presents [#106] War & Peace in the Modern World On the heels of the presidential debate, which at least in part focused on foreign policy, the discussions in tonight's episode are both timely and pressing. The show opens with Jane Harman, Craig Nixon, Michael O'Hanlon, James Steinberg, Dina Temple-Raston discussing America's future military role in the world. There are enormous challenges including climate change, education, economy, failed states, terrorism, and other broad issues that affect our security and international stability. How much is our national security embedded in these broader challenges? Should we be spending more or less on our military? When should we intervene? How often should we be using drones? Should we reinstate the draft or mandatory National Service? This episode explores significant questions about the nature of war and the potential for peace. duration 56:46   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

The issue of taxation has become a huge part of the Presidential campaign. While people are focused on taxes on a national level, the idea of eliminating the personal income tax on the state level could affect the economic well being of voters just as significantly. Several states have eliminated the personal income tax and there are movements in several more to pass similar measures. What is the demonstrable economic benefit of eliminating the income tax and what are the downsides? duration 29:00   STEREO TVG

This program follows the Underground Railroad through a little-known passage to freedom in the northernmost corner of Pennsylvania. Character voices, reenactments, documents and diaries create a vivid account of Pennsylvania in the years leading up to the Civil War. duration 56:48   STEREO TVG
  • MORNING
  • 6:00 am
    Whispers of Angels: A Story of the Underground Railroad In the first half of the 19th century, the Eastern Line of the Underground Railroad functioned to funnel fugitive slaves from their lives in captivity to freedom in the North. A corridor of courage existed from Maryland's eastern shore through the border state of Delaware and into Pennsylvania. Two men formed an extraordinary relationship that successfully helped to free thousands of slaves. Thomas Garrett, a white Quaker abolitionist in Wilmington, Delaware and William Still, a black son of slaves in Philadelphia, (along with Harriet Tubman and many others) heroically risked their own freedom for that of others. Actors Edward Asner and Blair Underwood respectively play these roles in dramatic reenactments in this documentary, which highlights unique racial cooperation not seen again until the 1960's in America. The program includes dramatic reenactments of escapes, trials, slave auctions and clandestine meetings. duration 59:20   STEREO TVG
  • 7:00 am
    Abolitionists: American Experience, The [#101] The Abolitionists, Part One Shared beliefs about slavery bring together Angelina Grimke, the daughter of a Charleston plantation family, who moves north and becomes a public speaker against slavery; Frederick Douglass, a young slave who becomes hopeful when he hears about the abolitionists; William Lloyd Garrison, who founds the newspaper The Liberator, a powerful voice for the movement; Harriet Beecher Stowe, whose first trip to the South changes her life and her writing; and John Brown, who devotes his life to the cause. The abolitionist movement, however, is in disarray and increasing violence raises doubts about the efficacy of its pacifist tactics. duration 56:46   STEREO TVPG-VL (Secondary audio: none)
