In the last year, Story in the Public Square brought you scholars, journalists, novelists, movie makers and more. Some of the stories they shared made us laugh. Others caused us worry and even anger. All of them helped us understand public life in the United States today.
Over 48 episodes in the previous 12 months, we’ve had the opportunity to talk about big issues facing the United States with remarkable storytellers and scholars. Every one of them has helped shine a light on important issues. This week, we’re going to take a look back at some of the best moments of 2017.
One of the featured stories will be the 2017 Pell Center Prize winner, Daphne Matziaraki and her incredible documentary “22 Minutes,” about the refugee crisis on the waters between Turkey and Greece. Tune in for all of Jim & Wayne’s top picks of 2017.
