Airline Fares, Amy Winehouse Doc, and KCRW in Berlin: Surveillance

Hosted by  • 

This fourth of July weekend, millions of Americans will be flying somewhere, and those holiday plane tickets probably didn’t come cheap. So this week’s announcement that the Department of Justice is investigating the four major airlines for collusion caught our attention here at Press Play. Then, KCRW in Berlin: Madeleine tours the famous former Stasi prison—now a museum—where the East German Secret Police held and interrogated political prisoners during the Cold War. Next, the director of the new Amy Winehouse documentary talks about the singer’s early, jazzy, coherent years...before Back to Black, fame, and drugs. And in our weekly web roundup, we cover the backlash to the New York Times’ suggestion of putting peas in guacamole, “Zero UI,” and more.
