FROM THIS EPISODE

In 2014, the New Yorker staff writer Jennifer Gonnerman wrote about Kalief Browder, a teen-ager from the Bronx who spent three years jailed at Rikers Island without ever being convicted of a crime. After his release, Browder committed suicide. In excerpts from Gonnerman's interviews with him, he speaks candidly about the psychological toll of solitary confinement, and what it meant to have the criminal-justice system take away years of his life. Also, the Public Theatre's artistic director, Oskar Eustis, tells David Remnick why Hamilton will have a real impact on America's debate on immigration, and the New Yorker's theatre critic, Hilton Als, speaks with the actress Michelle Williams. Lastly, we reveal the real answer to the question "Can my dog say hi?"
