Should We Embrace The Common Core

10/02/2014 - An Intelligence Squared Debate - In K-12 education, there is nothing more controversial than the Common Core State Standards, national academic standards in English and math. Adopted by more than 40 states, they were developed, in part, to address concerns that American students were falling behind their foreign counterparts. Has the federal government overreached and saddled our schools with standards that have been flawed from the start? The debaters are Carmel Martin, Carol Burris, Michael Petrill, and Frederick Hess.

Individuals and Organizations Have a Constitutional Right to Unlimited Spending

09/25/2014 - An Intelligence Squared Debate – Is independent political speech the linchpin of our democracy or its Achilles' heel?   For democracy to work, some say, citizens (and corporations, and unions, and media outlets, and other voluntary organizations) must be allowed to express their views on the issues, candidates, and elections of the day.

Laughter

09/20/2014 - We all laugh.  And you'll find that humor has very little to do with it.  We ask what makes us laugh? Along the way, we tickle some rats, listen in on a baby's first laugh, talk to a group of professional laughers, and travel to Tanzania to investigate an outbreak of contagious laughter.

Cities

09/06/2014 - In this hour, we take to the street to ask what makes cities tick.  There's no scientific metric for measuring a city's personality.  But step out on the sidewalk, and you can see and feel it.
