A Crisis of Citizenship

Thursday, July 26, 2018

Cities like Norfolk can't fill juries for trials, and cases are being delayed. One of the most basic rights guaranteed by the US Constitution is being undermined, because citizens aren't doing their duty at the local level. Jonathan Edwards of the Virginian Pilot, who covered this story, will join us along with Norfolk Sheriff Joe Baron and the clerk of the Norfolk Circuit Court, George Schaefer. It will be a discussion about justice and civic engagement in the 21st century. We'll also check in with Mal Vincent to find out what's going on this week in Mal's World.

Today's Guests:

Death Netiquette

Tuesday, July 24, 2018

We've become accustomed to sharing big life moments on social media, like welcoming a new baby, getting engaged or graduating from college. But what about when someone close to us dies? When do you post? What do you post? We'll discuss the netiquette of posting on social media in the event of a death with professor Carla Sofka who co-edited the book "Dying, Death and Grief in an Online Universe: For Counselors and Educators." We'll also talk to one of our producers who has a first-hand experience. What has your experience been posting on social media about death?
