The Supreme Court heard arguments this week about whether gay marriage should be legal. There are people who believe that gay marriage erodes the dignity of marriage.

10:00am Krista Tippett On Being  Composer Mohammed Fairouz has been called a post-millennial Schubert. He’s composed four symphonies and an opera while still in his twenties, and he’s as passionate about statecraft as about art, so he invokes John F. Kennedy and Anwar Sadat, Seamus Heaney, and Yehuda Amichai in his compositions. He weaves poetry, even enduring political speech, into his music as a form of music too, and as a way, just maybe, to shift the world on its axis. His 11 albums include “Native Informant,” “In The Shadow of No Towers,” and “Poems and Prayers.” “Follow, Poet” is his latest work, and its the inaugural release in a new series called Return to Language by Universal Music Classics.
11:00am New Dimensions
  For the Love of Poetry and Sacred Texts  If we are to grasp Willis Barnstone’s greatest contribution to culture over the course of his 87 years, we can focus on his role first and foremost as a poet – a lover of words, both his own and those of others and what he believes are sacred words from our earliest written records down to present day mystics and poets. He is the author of “The Restored New Testament: A New Translation with Commentary, Including the Gnostic Gospels Thomas, Mary, and Judas.” Program #3535.

The hometown Goshen College Chamber Choir will shore up Michiana's reputation for choral excellence with sacred and secular pieces. We're looking to entice the audience to sing along, and hoping to hear big voices from the farthest reaches of the hall. Indianapolis-born sister duo Lily and Madeleine will sing in breathtaking sibling harmony their songs of longing and heartache and paradise found. And Goshen College student Ethan Setiawan will show us why he recently became the youngest person to be named National Mandolin Champion. On top of it all: the Royal Academy of Radio Actors Tim Russell, Sue Scott, and Fred Newman; music director and good-time pianist Richard Dworsky with triple-threat Richard Kriehn on mandolin and fiddle and guitar; and of course the latest News from Lake Wobegon.
8:00pm American Routes with Nick Spitzer  The Funk Soul Universe: Galactic and Joe Bataan (repeat)  It’s an exploration of the funk universe on American Routes.

6:30pm CounterSpin  The killing of two Western hostages by a CIA drone strike in Pakistan led some US media to re- engage debate over US drone policy, but media’s discussion is over how and where drones should be used—not whether they should be. We’ll talk to law professor Marjorie Cohn, author of “Drones and Targeted Killing: Legal, Moral and Geopolitical Issues.” Also on the show: Sometimes called the Green Nobel, the Goldman Environmental Prize is given to grassroots environmental activists from each of six world regions. This year’s winners, including Honduran indigenous rights leader Berta Caceres and the group COPINH, are fighting not just governments but some of the world’s most powerful corporations to protect their land and livelihood. That’s why Caceres and her colleagues face death threats and repression, and it surely has something to do with why you can read all of the US media coverage of Caceres and the Goldman Prize in the time of an elevator ride. We’ll hear from Beverly Bell of the group Other Worlds about this story. As usual, CounterSpin also looks back on the week’s news, including the Baltimore protests and the Supreme Court’s consideration of marriage equality.

Turner, whose style earned him the informal title “the painter of light.” Historian William Rodner (Tidewater Community College) is the author of J.M.W. Turner: Romantic Painter of the Industrial Revolution. Rodner says Turner was one of the first major artists to depict the Industrial Revolution. And: In the 1830s, thousands of women were involved in the movement to abolish slavery. Stephanie Richmond (Norfolk State University) says the presence and activity of women in the abolitionist movement laid the framework for another important movement: women’s suffrage.

10:00am Krista Tippett On Being  It's a remarkable feature of our time: we are changing the nature of aging. Like all progress, this has an upside and a downside. As Jane Gross' mother went through a long decline after her mid-80s, she put it this way, poignantly: "We live too long and die too slowly." Partly as a result of accompanying her mother through these years, Jane created The New Old Age blog at The New York Times. Her hard-won wisdom on experiencing the new old age of our parents and ourselves  is eloquent, practically useful, and blunt. Krista spoke with her in 2011.

10:00am Krista Tippett On Being  Maria Popova has called her invention and labor of love, Brain Pickings, a human-powered discovery engine for interestingness. What started as a weekly email to 7 friends in 2006 has grown to a website, a weekly digest to hundreds of thousands, and a Twitter feed with half a million followers. Brain Pickings has also been included in the Library of Congress permanent archive since 2012. Popova doesn’t merely curate, she cross-pollinates between philosophy and design, physics and poetry, the scholarly and the experiential, and what she really delivers is wisdom of the old-fashioned sort, presented in new-fashioned digital ways.

The AP story lists “mites, poor nutrition and pesticides,” in that order, as possible causes for what’s been called an almost biblical bee decline, but pesticide-makers would have you think they don’t belong on the list at all. Are their PR efforts affecting even government research? We’ll hear from Tiffany Finck-Haynes of Friends of the Earth. Also on the show: The vivid and powerful New York Times series on conditions for workers in nail salons was the definition of “impact” journalism; New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced responsive measures just days after the story ran. But are occasional blockbuster stories the best media can do for workers rights issues? What’s the next step? We’ll talk about that with journalist Michelle Chen. And, as usual, we’ll take a look back at the week’s press, including coverage of British elections and North Korea.

The very language of America’s indigenous art form, jazz, has developed hand-in-hand with the legacy of these seminal small groups, led by some of the art form’s most respected and significant band leaders and musicians.

10:00am Krista Tippett On Being  Movies, for some of us, are a form of modern church. So though you may not immediately recognize the name Gustavo Santaolalla, you've probably heard the cinematic landscapes he's created for films like Babel and Brokeback Mountain, for which he's won Academy Awards. He grew up in Argentina, in the time of the military junta and the trauma that became known as the Dirty War. After moving to Los Angeles, he became a record producer, a sometime solo performer, and he's composed the scores for over a dozen feature films. In all of this he sustains a creative tension between his Argentinian identity and the global contours of modern film and modern life.
