Subjective and Objective

On today’s show: we’ll speak with the chief creative officer and the artistic director of the Tribeca Film Festival about what we can look forward to seeing this time around. John D’Agata and fact-checker Jim Fingal on the use of the truth in writing non-fiction. Today’s installment of A History of the World in 100 Objects looks at a Ming Dynasty bank note. Plus, Patricia T. O’Conner answers questions about the confounding—and at times discombobulating—English language.
