Who Is Free to Speak Their Minds on Campus? Guest: Henry Reichman, Emeritus Professor of History at California State University, East Bay, Author of "The Future of Academic Freedom" “Universities that want taxpayer dollars should promote free speech, not silence free speech,” President Donald Trump said two weeks ago issuing an executive order that cuts federal research funding to institutions that fail to promote “free inquiry.” He was flanked at the signing ceremony by conservative student activists. So what’s going on with speech on campuses in America right now?  The Hunt for the USS Wasp Guest: Samuel J. Cox, Director of the Naval History and Heritage Command and Curator of the Navy, Retired US Navy Rear Admiral There are 3,000 US Navy ships lying at the bottom of the ocean – that we know of. Many more ships are lost at sea, along with their crew. But there’s an underwater vessel called “the Petrel” dedicated to tracking down wreckage. The Petrel recently discovered the USS Wasp, 75 years after it sank.  That aircraft carrier is just one of dozens of missing ships the Petrel’s crew has found.  New Barbie Will Come With a Wheelchair Guest: Curt Decker, Executive Director, National Disability Rights Network Part of the allure of Barbie has always been her accessories – the outfits, the Dream House, the pink Corvette. This summer Mattel is introducing a Barbie with what is says has been one of the most requested accessories – a wheelchair. Another Barbie will come with a removable prosthetic leg. They’re part of the Barbie Fashionistas line, which includes a variety of skin tone, hair and body types.   Apple Seed Guest: Sam Payne, Host, The Apple Seed, BYUradio How Stories Create a Safe Space to Explore Relationships Problems Guest: Nathan Silver, Doctoral Student in Communication, Ohio State University Do you or your kids sometimes get really, really invested in a TV relationship?
