Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is now author of Making Our Democracy Work: A Judge’s View. He discusses civic education and some of the most notable decisions to come out of the courts. Plus: journalist Isabel Wilkerson shares her own Great Migration story and takes listener calls; German film director Werner Herzog on his new documentary on the death penalty; Dr. Jane Goodall, primatologist, on chimpanzee lessons; and what a stack of old report cards tells us about pupils of the past.
