4 segments

The news is all bad regarding heroin in our area, but do the numbers justify calling it an epidemic? Michael Tracey, who wrote about this for Al Jazeera, discusses whether the response has been appropriate. Plus: A Green Beret who served in Afghanistan talks about the roles of special forces soldiers; and historian John Strausbaugh takes us for a spin through archival WNYC shows that document the changes that were happening in Greenwich Village in the late 1950s.
