    It's a Brian Lehrer Show experiment called "Fast, Deep, and Out of Control." One hour of quick-hit segments; one hour deep dive; and one "out of control" call-in. Wendy Davis’ filibuster shone a spotlight on a legislative battle over abortion access in Texas. We’ll look at the wider landscape of abortion rights in the U.S. Then, the root of extradition agreements and how they work; and why the National Institutes of Health have announced they’re moving away from research on our close relatives, chimpanzees. Plus: a special deep dive on affirmative action – including the history of the policy, goals, and how to know when it’s working.

    New Sounds
  • New Releases, June 2013

    It's that time of the month again for the new releases show on New Sounds. John Schaefer carefully separates the wheat from the chaff for this show.  He'll sort through the stacks of new CDs, the Soundcloud files, and other digital submissions which have come across his desk and into his inbox over the past month to present some of the finest new releases. He'll skim off the cream. He'll pick the lentils from the ashes. You get it. 

    Hear music from the Mobius Trio, who make new guitar ensemble music, along with multi-layered 6-string magic from Ben Brody.   Then, listen to Dawn of Midi, who make groove music that sounds as though it is electronica, but it's made acoustically.  Also, hear the bayan, an accordion-like instrument, as it is used in the Bester Quartet. Plus, music from Philippe Petit which may or may not involve electric cymbalum, triple caterpillar drum guitar, and/or electric psalterion.
