Wall St. Journal reporter Amy Dockser Marcus describes following a group of parents and scientists for six years, as they worked together to find a treatment for a rare and fatal genetic disease. Bob Brier looks at why we’re still obsessed with the mummies, pyramids and hieroglyphics of Ancient Egypt after 3,000 years. Marion Lipschutz and Rose Rosenblatt tell us about their documentary “Young Lakota,” about the political awakening of a Lakota woman, Sunny Clifford, who also joins us. And the ACLU’s Jameel Jaffer gives us an overview of what we now know about the government’s surveillance programs.
