Sleep

03/01/2014 - Birds do it, bees do it...yet science still can't answer the basic question: why do we sleep?  Every creature on the planet sleeps - from giant humpback whales to teeny fruit flies.  What does it do for us, and what happens when we go without it?  We take a peek at iguanas sleeping with one eye open, get in bed with a pair of sleep-deprived new parents, and eavesdrop on the uneasy dreams of rats.

State of the Re:Union Re:Defining Black HIstory

2/20/2014 - During a month selected to celebrate “history,” we certainly are treated to a lot of the same familiar stories: the battles won for Civil Rights, the glory of Martin Luther King Jr.’s words, the hardships endured by slaves. And as important as those narratives are for us to collectively remember, many others get lost in trumpeting the same heroic tales. In this hour, State of the Re:Union zeroes in some of those alternate narratives, ones edited out of the mainstream imagining of Black History, deconstructing the popular perception of certain celebrated moments.
