    "Truth is a pathless land" said the Indian spiritual leader and iconoclast J. Krishnamurti. He taught pacifism and harmony; he sought freedom through a transformation of the human psyche. People flocked to follow him as he moved across continents and through much of the twentieth century, spreading his word. He never wanted to be called a guru and yet his followers (who included Hollywood film stars) insisted on it.

    Brown vs. the Board of Education was the 1954 Supreme Court decision that declared the old "separate but equal" policies of many school boards unconstitutional. The Brown case triggered numerous court mediated desegregation policies around the country, all designed to get equal education to all students. Producer Kathy Baron looks at school districts in California, fifty years after the Brown decision. What, in fact, does an equal education look like?

    Gamma rays are the most intense form of radiation. As the Cold War focused on the spread of nuclear war, a U.S. spy satellite searching for clandestine nuclear weapons tests detected frequent, but brief, bursts of powerful gamma-rays, a possible signal of a hydrogen bomb explosion. Interviewing some of the original researchers of this phenomenon, Producer David Barrett Wilson takes us from that starting point through the beginning of scientific research into these bizarre surges of energy.

    Earth and its neighboring planets Venus and Mars all began with similar temperatures, mineral compositions, and atmospheric gases that could have led to the formation of life. Earth was the only planet to pull off that trick, while climate change took Venus and Mars in less hospitable directions. It was much like the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears"; Mars was too cold, Venus was too hot, but Earth was just right.

Producer Maria Martin visits healers in the border town of El Porvenir, Mexico and in Buena Vista, New Mexico.

    The world of biology is a messy business. But the study of reproduction and evolution is crucial to understanding the nature of all things animal, vegetable, and even digital. The code that is used to build computer programs is much like our own DNA. And as it turns out, not only can computer programs have sex and reproduce, but they can also lie, cheat, steal, copy, infect and gang up on each other. In short, they can act a lot like humans, which is good news for evolutionary biologists.

Producer Dave Harries (reluctantly) visits the Mondovi Vineyards in California where growers are operating what plant and soil scientist John Norman at University of Wisconsin calls precision farming: using meteorology and agriculture tools to get the wine just right.

Producer Stephen Smith explores the mysterious powers of savants — people with profound mental disabilities who develop an island of genius in music, mathematics or art.

    When Albert Einstein told us about the relationship between mass, energy, space and time, he assumed that the universe was static. Even though his first equations showed that in fact the cosmos was moving apart from some source, he thought that was a mistake. So he added a fudge factor — what he called the cosmological constant, a way of balancing the force of gravity. Later, he was to call the cosmological constant the biggest mistake of his life.

That way, he comes to know them intimately, in his gallery of the mind.

    In 1932, in the depths of the Depression, thousands of hungry and disgruntled veterans of WW I marched on Washington, D.C. demanding that Congress pay them the bonus for their military service that had been promised years before. Banding together, unemployed Oregon cannery workers marched with Pennsylvania coal miners and Alabama cotton pickers, as more than 20 thousand "bonus marchers" participated in the biggest rally to date in the nation's capital.

    The Human Papillomavirus, or HPV, is a common virus that touches billions of human beings in one way or another — from a tiny wart on the hand to invasive cancer. HPV can be found worldwide, yet most people who are infected never show any symptoms. The virus can "hide" for years from a person's immune system, with no apparent ill effects, and then awaken and trigger deadly disease.

    The global economy: your view of it depends on where you are. For more than a century, trees in the Pacific Northwest have meant jobs. In rural Japan, trees have meant jobs as well. New log processing technology and the trade in raw logs is reshaping the way the timber industry in both countries does business. It's forcing a change in corporate culture, in consumer habits, and a way of life for many of those who work in timber.

    Have you taken a reality check lately? And just what is reality? Take a journey inside your brain (scientists now call it 'wetware') with producer Adi Gevins and reporter John Hockenberry, and with the help of scientists at brain research labs and your radio, join in some participatory experiments in perception. The dangling question: do we really perceive an existing outer world, or is it all internal -- does the world we live in exist only in our own senses and perceptions?

    Imagine that your parent is your teacher, your siblings are your classmates, and your kitchen is your classroom. Plus, you get to study outside, choose your areas of interest, and do your classwork online. The image of the home-school is changing from detached and reclusive, to engaged and mainstream. And not all home-school education is alike. Home school parent and producer Heather Gattucio examines very different approaches to this alternative education.
