    America Reframed [#217] Town Hall This episode casts an unflinching eye at Katy and John, two Tea Party activists from the battleground state of Pennsylvania who believe America's salvation lies in a return to true conservative values. In Katy, we see a political novice rocketed to media stardom after a sensational confrontation at a town hall meeting with her senator. A young stay-at-home mom turned Tea Party spokesperson, she is gifted a new identity, steeled by the voices of conservative media. For John, a retired former businessman and lifelong Republican living in one of the poorest cities in the country, the America he knows is slipping away. Heading up a local Tea Party group is his last, best chance at stanching the changes he is witnessing all around him, but unable to afford his aging mother's health care, John has to make difficult decisions that reveal the complicated relationship between his principles and the demands of his life. duration 1:16:20   STEREO (Secondary audio: none)
  • MORNING
  • 6:30 am
    Out of Order Now more than ever, American citizens are discontented and disillusioned with national politics, with approval ratings for Congress consistently ranking low regardless of the party in power. Senior politicians also note the disappearance of the collegiality they once shared with peers of differing political ideologies. As a result, the ability to discuss issues from varying points of view and negotiate solutions, appears to be fading from the American political process.
    Among many topics, this program addresses the decline in civil discourse and the news media's role in it, partisan gridlock, gerrymandering, vanishing commitment to reasonable compromise, the vilification of moderates and declining civic engagement. It relies on interviews with a broad range of political experts and observers from journalists, academics and political strategists to senior elected officials. They include: journalist Bob Schieffer (CBS News), Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), Sen. Susan Collins (R-MA), Fmr Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN), Fmr Sen. Alan Simpson (R-WY), Fmr Sen. John Warner (R-VA) .

    Tomorrow: Japan Beyond 3/11 [#228] A New Departure: SCK Girls Standing on Their Own Feet SCK Girls are an all-girl band based in Kesennuma in Miyagi prefecture. They were brought together by Ken-ichi Abe, who worked for a local insurance firm. In October 2011, only seven months after the disaster, he placed an advertisement in the newspaper to form a youth band that might give cheer to people in the disaster-hit communities. Six local girls expressed interest. They provide their own choreography and perform in temporary housing estates set up for people who were made homeless by the disaster. Abe succumbed to cancer in the summer of 2013, leaving the band leader Rise Takahashi to manage the band's activities. This program follows Rise, who now organizes their events and looks at how the band has grown and matured. duration 28:12   STEREO TVRE (Secondary audio: none)
