CAPTAIN JOHN SMITH, POCAHONTAS AND THE FOUNDING OF AMERICA

CAPTAIN JOHN SMITH, POCAHONTAS AND THE FOUNDING OF AMERICA
Monday, October 13, 2014
He fought and beheaded three Turkish adversaries in duels. He was sold into slavery, then murdered his master to escape. He sailed under a pirate flag, was shipwrecked and marched to the gallows to be hanged, only to be reprieved at the eleventh hour. And all this happened before he was thirty years old. This is Captain John Smith’s life. Today, award-winning BBC filmmaker and author, Peter Firstbrook, joins us to trace the adventurer’s astonishing exploits across three continents, testing Smith’s own writings against the historical and geographical reality on the ground.

Gen. Silent

Many of those who fought the first battles for LGBT rights now face fear of discrimination, bullying and abuse in the health and nursing care system, forcing many to return to the closet rather than confront their health care choices. Filmmaker Stu Maddux followed the lives of six LGBT elders living in Boston for a year to tell their story.  Stu Maddux joins us in advance of a free screening of Gen Silent at WHRO this Thursday, find out more here.

Enchanted Objects
Thursday, October 2, 2014
In his new book, ENCHANTED OBJECTS, M.I.T. Media Lab researcher, David Rose, explores the sometimes too-futuristic world of "smart" house objects. A world of Jetsonian objects are already a reality: coffee tables that you can check Facebook on, refrigerators that monitor your grocery purchases and toasters that talk to you.  These household-wonders can enhance and develop human relationships when guided properly, and David join us today to share his outline for an enlightened tech future.
