6:30pm CounterSpin  March 22 was World Water Day, meant to call attention to the crisis in world water supply and sanitation that makes lack of access to clean water far and away the leading cause of death for children under 5. Headlines about “taking shorter showers” suggest mainstream media didn’t dive that deeply into the crisis’ environmental, economic or political context. We talk about water with Darcey O’Callaghan, International Policy Director at Food & Water Watch. Also, you may have heard that the Class of 2014 is the most indebted ever, or that graduates leave school with an average of $33,000 of debt, but now some are telling us the student loan crisis is “easing,” others that it was never that big a deal to begin with. What’s up with that, and what impact would Barack Obama’s proposed Student Aid Bill of Rights have on the issue? We’ll get that story from Natalia Abrams, executive director of Student Debt Crisis.

6:30pm With Good Reason with Sarah McConnell  Secrecy in the “Sunshine Era”  In the 1970s, a series of laws ushered in a new “sunshine era” of unprecedented government transparency. In his new book Secrecy in the Sunshine Era, Jason Ross Arnold (Virginia Commonwealth University) investigates how, despite these reforms, government officials developed new workarounds, including overclassification, concealment, shredding, and burning. And: Has the Magna Carta’s 800-year legacy been a snowball of misinterpretations? Thomas McSweeney (College of William and Mary) says he doesn’t think its authors intended it to be the foundational text for common law that it became. Plus: Last year, a commission of experts found new history textbooks approved by the Board of Education in Texas were pushing a specific ideology. One of the experts, Emile Lester (University of Mary Washington), says parts of the textbooks weren’t just misleading; they were false.

5:00pm On the Media  with Bob Garfield and Brooke Gladstone.  The impact of cancer is not limited to patients and their loved ones -- it's a powerful symbol appropriated by Hollywood, advertising, and the news media to signify what we most fear. This week, we examine the stories we tell about cancer: on stage, on screen, and online.
6:30pm Left, Right & Center  Josh Barro (domestic correspondent for the New York Times) moderates from the Center. On the Left, Robert Scheer (Editor-in-Chief, TruthDig-dot-com). Rich Lowry (National Review) is on the Right. Virginia Postrel (Bloomberg View) is our special guest. Iran agrees to reduce its stockpile of enriched uranium and other foreign powers will lift their economic sanctions. Will the deal be effective in keeping the Iranian nuclear program inside the box? Bob says it's an incredible breakthrough "comparable to Nixon's visit to China." Rich says the Iranians would have been foolish to walk away from this deal and "if you think Iran is not going after a nuclear weapon you are living in a fantasy world." Indiana lawmakers successfully negotiated a fix to their religious freedom law. What kinds of discrimination should be allowed by law?

In this hour, stories of cross-species communication.

6:30pm New Letters on the Air  We begin National Poetry month by remembering Philip Levine. The work of the former national Poet Laureate has been described visceral, angry, deceptively simple and pulsing with the sweat and grit of manual labor. His poetic sensibilities revolve around two places, Detroit and Barcelona, cities he viewed as built upon the backs of the muzzled and exploited worker, and he sought to bear witness for them. This episode is compiled from two 1980s recordings and features poems from his Pulitzer prizing winning collection “The Simple Truth” and “Ashes: Poems New and Old.”

5:00pm Bytemarks Café 
with Burt Lum and Ryan Ozawa. 
6:30pm CounterSpin  The backlash was immediate and strong against the so-called Religious Freedom Restoration Act just passed in Indiana. The law’s proponents, including Gov. Mike Pence, say it’s just intended to “open a door” to conversations about how people can express religious beliefs. Legal scholars and rights advocates say that the law as originally written actually invites conflict and sanctions discrimination, particularly against LGBT people. The scores of organizations saying they will reconsider doing business with and in Indiana seem to know who they believe. What can journalists do to shed light on this story without resorting to a “some say, others differ” approach? We’ll hear from Jennifer Wagner from the group Freedom Indiana on that. Also on the show (and speaking of backlash), the Internet and Twitterverse made short work of lambasting entertainment-industry outlet Deadline for a piece that legitimized the idea that the presence of a larger than usual number of people of color in broadcast TV series means “the pendulum might have swung a bit too far in the opposite direction”–that white actors, in other words, are now the ones being discriminated against. But the thesis and tone of that piece didn’t come from nowhere, and denouncing the article doesn’t erase the climate that produced it. We’ll talk about Hollywood and race with Darnell Hunt, professor of sociology and director of the Ralph J. Bunche Center for African-American Studies at UCLA.

Only a few years later, McCharen’s hobby has grown into Chromat, an experimental label worn by just about every major female pop star, including Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Madonna, and Nicki Minaj.

The 2016 presidential candidates are becoming official. Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio plan to announce over the weekend. Rand Paul is in. How's it going so far? Rich says Rand Paul had a failed rollout. Josh says you don't want someone who is making up policy on the fly. Margie says Hillary Clinton's planned video announcement is all she needs. Is Marco Rubio the one with the skills? President Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro talk on the phone -- the second such chat between the two countries in 50 years. Margie said a new poll of Cubans show 97% in favor of normalizing relations between the US and Cuba. Bob calls the latest moves "the end game of a half century of war footing." Will the video of Walter Scott being shot from behind by a police officer change public perception of police brutality? Why isn't the topic coming up on the campaign trail?

6:30pm CounterSpin  The extremist group Al Shabab attacked a government building in Mogadishu on April 14, leaving 17 people dead, just weeks after a horrific attack at Garissa University in Kenya in which at least 148 people were killed. Media readers will know that Al Shabab is based in Somalia and that they’re “linked to” Al Qaeda, but what more should we know? And what needs to happen in Somalia and elsewhere to help that country move forward? We’ll talk about that with Abdi Ismail Samatar, professor and chair of the Department of Geography, Environment & Society at the University of Minnesota and a member of the African Academy of Sciences. Also on the show: Many were heartened, if that’s the word, to see four former Blackwater security contractors going to jail for killing 14 unarmed Iraqis in Nisour Square in 2007. But does this mean others who committed atrocities under cover of war will face justice? The Obama administration doesn’t even want to release more photographs unearthed of torture and abuse at the infamous Abu Ghraib prison, so how likely is anyone with power to be prosecuted for it? There is one Abu Ghraib-based lawsuit making its way through the courts, with the help of the Center for Constitutional Rights. We’ll talk to senior staff attorney Katherine Gallagher about the state of that case.

Plus, Dr. Oz defends his credibility and a look at the Hubble space telescopes lasting impact on popular culture.
6:30pm Left, Right & Center  Josh Barro (domestic correspondent for the New York Times) moderates from the Center. On the Left, Robert Scheer (Editor-in-Chief, TruthDig-dot-com). Rich Lowry (National Review) is on the Right. Juliette Kayyem  (Lecturer at the Kennedy School, former Assist Sec at DHS, former advisor at DOJ, WGBH Podcast Security Mom) is our special guest. A U.S. drone strike targeting an al Qaeda compound in January accidentally killed two innocent hostages. Are these kinds of mistakes inherent to war? "There is no system of security that is foolproof and perfect," says Juliette. A New York Times analysis about the history of the program says we've gotten it wrong more than we've gotten it right. Four Star General David Petreaus, who commanded military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq, is sentenced to two years probation and $100,000 fine for sharing classified information with his biographer and mistress. Was that an appropriate punishment? Juliette and Bob consider it a too-light slap on the wrist. The Clinton Foundation is under fire for accepting money from an organization that sold uranium mining companies to a Russian nuclear agency. Is this a security concern? Should the Clintons be accepting money from foreign donors? A New York Magazine article by Jonathan Chait says the Clintons have been disorganized and greedy.

6:30pm CounterSpin  There’s plenty of opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, but in corporate press accounts, the whole debate is reduced to battling soundbites. More useful and more interesting journalism would include getting outside the Beltway and talking to people about what the fallout from TPP and similar corporate-centered international agreements really looks like. We’ll fill in some of the picture with Karen Hansen-Kuhn, director of international strategies at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. Also on the show: In all the media talk around newly confirmed Attorney General Loretta Lynch, her role as US attorney in brokering a deferred-prosecution agreement with HSBC when the bank was found guilty of money laundering for the likes of the Sinoloa drug cartel was hardly considered. This says something about Lynch–but also about media’s general lack of outrage about government support for big banks, no matter what crimes they commit. A few months back, CounterSpin spoke with journalist James Henry about more HSBC violations recently come to light — violations, it turns out, Loretta Lynch knew about when she worked on that deal.

Johnson Museum) are making a film on how Roane survived Stalin’s purges and returned to the United States to become a mentor to young African American agricultural students. Also: Brian McKnight’s (University of Virginia at Wise) new book We Fight for Peace tells the story of American prisoners of war in the Korean War, who defected to North Korea and what happened to them when they decided to return to the United States.
