We look at how the state of Texas has helped shape the American prison system. Then, we’ll talk with Barry Gibbs, who just received a multi-million-dollar settlement from New York State after serving 19 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Also, David Means discusses The Spot: Stories, his second collection of short fiction. Plus, we’ll look at how scientists can fingerprint oil spills. And on Underreported we look into other major oil spills, including some you've probably never heard of.
