She Is One Of Us
It's easy for a community to turn on the outsiders among them. The Salem witch trials had become a textbook example of this over the first few months. But in July of 1692, all of that changed. As the Court of Oyer and Terminer rolled full speed ahead, it seems anyone could be a witch.
Until now, the daily flood of examinations had been a temporary fix while everyone waited for the new government to set up an official trial. For many, that trial would represent hope and conclusion. For some, however, it would extract a heavy, deadly price.
A Higher Power
Some people saw the growing witch panic in Salem as a threat to their lives, and they tried to run and hide. Others saw an opportunity for profit and advancement. Through it all, though, the fire would continue to burn, and unlikely individuals would be caught up in the blaze.
Does Race Really Exist Or Did We Create It, With Wyclef Jean and Alvin Tillery
Despite a belief that race relations are getting worse, a majority of Americans agree that someone’s racial identity is not hard-wired into their DNA, but the result of decades of socially constructed differences, according to a new survey by Northwestern University’s Center for the Study of Diversity and Democracy. On this thought-provoking and inspiring episode, host Baratunde Thurston sits down with musician and activist Wyclef Jean and Associate Professor of political science, Alvin Tillery, to discuss how people view the connections between genetics and race, what is “true” vs what different groups of people believe to be true about themselves, where we have made strides, where we have a ways to go and hopes for a more ethically perfect world in the future. The conversation gets real, emotional and personal as all three share their stories. Wyclef talks immigrating to Brooklyn with his fearless “Haitian Black Panther” bravado; “My Dad always told me, don't forget, you're...
Can Science Change The Stories We Grew Up With? Exploring Identity With Pete Wentz and Dr. Robert Green.
Growing up in a small town in Illinois, musician Pete Wentz didn’t look or feel like others in his community, and never really felt that he fit in. So, he set out to create an identity of his own. On the latest episode of Spit, host Baratunde Thurston sits with Pete and medical geneticist and independent academic Dr. Robert Green to discuss how learning our DNA results can open up the stories of our past and reshape the trajectory of our future. In part 1 of the show, Pete shares his curiosity about what he might learn through taking the test. Dr. Green provides insight into what people can expect from at-home DNA tests, and the nuances around genetic probability. And in part 2, we get Pete’s real-time reaction to his results. Throughout it all, the trio discuss everything from personal identity and creating your own tribe to baby sequencing and whether Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger really did share the same DNA in “Twins.” Pete Wentz is currently on tour with Fall Out ...
How Are We All Related, with John Legend and Anne Wojcicki
For the debut episode of Spit, host Baratunde Thurston sits down with two people who are changing the world. One through Art, and one through Science. Join us for an intimate conversation and the unscripted thoughts and opinions of award-winning recording artist and philanthropist John Legend, and 23andMe Co-Founder and CEO Anne Wojcicki to deconstruct how understanding your human genome can change how we think about ourselves, our sense of belonging and our connection to each other and the world. If we are all 99.5% the same, why do we spend so much time on the 0.5% of differences? How does science prove or disprove the stories we’ve grown up with? How does understanding how much alike we really are bring more empathy and compassion into the world? How we are seeing each other more than ever before? How much can one person make a difference? And what we are all hopeful for… Spit is a new iHeartRadio podcast with 23andMe. Enjoy this episode? Subscribe, rate and review Spit on iTun...
Meghan Daum: "Nuance: A Love Story"
The dark web was her safe space. Meghan Daum, a long-time L.A. Times columnist, faced two endings: Obama’s government and her marriage. What resulted was a distancing from her gentrified bubble and a new love affair with the shadowy corners of free-speech internet. In “Nuance: A Love Story,” Meghan charts her growing infatuation with the public intellectuals touting controversial political ideas. They’re the folks arguing against identity politics, for example, and in favor of fundamental biological differences between men and women that shape their roles in society. But to Daum, these issues are all more complicated than what you can put in a sound bite or summarize in 280 characters. They require nuance. “I didn’t agree with my Free Speech YouTube friends on every point; far from it,” she explains. “Still, I was invigorated, even electrified, by their willingness to ask (if not ever totally answer) questions that had lately been deemed too messy somehow to deal with in mai...
"The Edge of Adulthood"
The final episode of Medium Playback's first season is about those who are just peering into the adult years that lay ahead. Right now, teenagers face a deeply unstable future —but maybe that's always been the case. Journalist Alyssa Giacobbe was one of the nine reporters who interviewed 46 teenagers for the collection The Edge of Adulthood. The results are both intriguing and familiar. This episode includes the original audio from four interviews Alyssa conducted so that you can hear from each teen, in the moment. 17-year-old Albuquerquan Juan Rubel Martinez was a high school dropout before finding ACE Leadership High School, which provides him with a more supportive, alternative form of education. Mckenzie Marquez, also 17, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and is waiting for the results after her second round of treatment. Dylan Fontaine, a computer enthusiast, battles depression. Finally, Texan Lucy (whose name was changed for the interview to protect her identity) is an abor...

In this episode of Armchair Expert, Pete sits down with Dax to examine his journey as a young musician, he explains how his son pulled him out of a depression and he tells the story of how James Gandolfini accidentally promoted his new bar. Dax talks about hitting his rock bottom in Hawaii and Pete reveals his connection to Muhammad Ali. They explore what it’s like to be a normal person turned role model, the inevitable infantilization that accompanies fame, how to balance artistic integrity and supplying a product, and Dax struggles to uncover Fall Out Boy’s vice.

A Clockwork Miracle
As legend goes, in 1562, King Philip II needed a miracle. So he commissioned one from a highly-skilled clockmaker. In this short, a king's deal with God leads to an intricate mechanical creation, and Jad heads to the Smithsonian to investigate. When the 17-year-old crown prince of Spain, Don Carlos, fell down a set of stairs in 1562, he threw his whole country into a state of uncertainty about the future. Especially his father, King Philip II, who despite being the most powerful man in the world, was helpless in the face of his heir's terrible head wound. When none of the leading remedies of the day--bleeding, blistering, purging, or drilling--helped, the king enlisted the help of a relic...the corpse of a local holy man who had died 100 years earlier. Then, Philip II promised that if God saved his son, he'd repay him with a miracle of his own. Elizabeth King, a professor at Virginia Commonwealth University, describes how--according to legend--Philip II held up his end of the bargai...
