Conflicting Diet Studies, The Culture of Reddit, and a Famous Boulder

Hosted by

Today on Press Play, we get an update on LAUSD’s controversial iPad program, which superintendent John Deasy continues to defend, even after pausing the program. Plus, with new diet studies that directly contradict each other, can we believe any studies we read about in the paper? We discuss the continuing fallout to the huge cache of celebrity intimate photos that were stolen and posted online and what it says about internet culture. Plus, a new documentary follows the long, slow travels of the 340-ton boulder that eventually became the cornerstone of the “Levitated Mass” sculpture at LACMA. And we find out why your computer is lying to you on a daily basis.
