Stay safe and healthy!

In the early 1950's, renowned dancer and choreographer Merce Cunningham produced a series of solo dances, one of which was called "Changeling." Merce never taught it to any one else, and when the performances stopped less than ten years later, the dance disappeared. With the discovery of a video of the dance in 2014 by director Alla Kovgan, we explore, through the legacy of Merce Cunningham, how dance is particularly susceptible to decay, how it is remembered, and how to bring back work that wasn't necessarily meant to be recreated.

#06: The Wonder Years
"The Wonder Years" married the bewilderment of a child with the nostalgia of an adult; and for a generation, the TV show created by Carol Black and Neal Marlens is a time machine back to the sixties, youth and innocence.

#05: Court of Memory
In our daily lives, we often accept that our memories are poor. We move on if our memories don’t exactly match up with another person’s, agreeing to disagree. But that’s not an option in court. And yet memory is as fragile and poor there as it is when we’re struggling to remember where exactly we had that second date. In "Court of Memory," our host speaks with Nathan Brown, an exoneree, Karen Newirth, a Senior Staff Attorney from the Innocence Project, and Julia Shaw, author of the Memory Illusion, as he explores the high stakes of remembering in the criminal justice system.

#02: Everything In Its Right Place
