12:06Responding to Violence
Last week, a man was beaten on a busy street corner in DC. The beating was violent and caught on videotape. But most disturbing is that no bystander intervened or even called 9111 until 20 minutes later. We look at the community response, learn what social scientists know about the Bystander Effect, and explore accusations that disinterest is the result of neighborhood gentrification.
Guests
Jim Graham, D.C. Councilmember (D-Ward 1)
Alfredo Enriquez-Morales, Executive Director, Neighbors Consejo , a social services agency serving drug addicts & the chronically homeless

13:06Darwin's birthday: The evolution of Evolution
This year marks two significant dates in scientific history: the 200th anniversary Charles Darwin's birth, and the 150th anniversary of Darwin's landmark work, "On the Origin of Species." We speak with scientists from a variety of scientific disciplines about what Darwin got right, what he got wrong, and how his work still guides cutting-edge research today.
