Salt Lake City, Utah – Monday, we begin a week-long series of conversations on the future of journalism. It's a partnership with the University of Utah's Hinckley Institute of Politics and we start with a look at the documentary "Page One: Inside the New York Times." Our guest is director Andrew Rossi, who spent a year in the Times newsroom chronicling how reporters, editors and publishers are dealing with an industry in the throes of change.
Salt Lake City, UT – In case you missed it, the world is supposed to end today -- Harold Camping of Family Radio adjusted the date after the apocalypse failed to arrive on May 21st. That provides City Weekly managing editor Dan Nailen with an excellent reason to go to the theater. He's talking with KUER's Dan Bammes about the Salt Lake Acting Company's production of God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza.
Salt Lake City, Utah – In the fall of 2008, Jay Bahadur was stuck in a job he hated. He yearned to be a journalist, but he had no faith in journalism schools. So he flew to the hinterlands of Somalia to write a book about the world of modern day buccaneers. He wanted to tell the full story of the pirates of Puntland: what they do and who they are as human beings on both land and sea, not simply the AK-47-toting thugs who appear in news stories. Bahadur joins Doug on Monday to talk about the pirates of Somalia.
