De-Extinction & The Act of Killing

From and

This week, Kurt talks with the director of the disturbing and singular new documentary The Act of Killing; it takes us into the minds of paramilitaries, where they re-imagine their massacres with fantasy dance sequences. We meet a biologist who wants to bring extinct species back to life — it’s not science fiction anymore. And we hear a performance from the band Radiation City, who have resurrected the long-extinct harmonies of early-60s girl groups. Plus, Jack Handey continues the strange and untrue adventure of The Stench of Honolulu.
