Hosted by

The U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments today in a case brought by a UPS driver who was put on unpaid leave after becoming pregnant. Then, Sony Pictures is still reeling from a devastating hacker attack; we hear about what’s been leaked, and the damage it’s done. Next, we hear from a science writer who recently devoted a week to writing about the concept of personhood: What is it, and how is being a person different from being human? Then, filmmaker Lacey Schwartz talks about her new autobiographical documentary, which chronicles her experience of finding out as a teenager that she’s actually black, not white. And finally, a look at what’s new online in our weekly web roundup, including an apology from the man who created pop-up ads.
