Our Body Politic
Unapologetically Centered
Created and hosted by award-winning journalist Farai Chideya, Our Body Politic is unapologetically centered on reporting on not just how women of color experience the major political events of today, but how they're impacting those very issues. Weekly episodes feature in-depth conversations about the economy, health, politics, education, the environment and the most prescient issues — because all issues are women's issues.

Radiolab
Sex Appeal
“Equal protection of the laws” was granted to all persons by the 14th Amendment in 1868. But for nearly a century after that, women had a hard time convincing the courts that they should be allowed to be jurors, lawyers, and bartenders, just the same as men. A then-lawyer at the ACLU named Ruth Bader Ginsburg set out to convince an all-male Supreme Court to take sex discrimination seriously with an unconventional strategy. Radiolab looks at how a key battle for gender equality was won with frat boys and beer.
4:00 am – 5:00 am
Hidden Brain
The Halo Effect
Judy, Lyn and Donna Ulrich were driving to a volleyball game when their Ford Pinto was hit from behind by a Chevy van. The Pinto caught fire, and the three teenagers were burned to death. Hidden Brain talks to a former Ford insider who could have voted to recall the Pinto years before the Ulrich girls were killed — but didn't. And the show asks, is it possible to fairly evaluate our past actions when we know how things turned out?
