Conservative Heart (0:56) Guest: Arthur Brooks, President of the American Enterprise Institute  The top ten candidates vying for the Republican presidential nomination will meet in the second debate of the season tonight on CNN. Listen closely to how they talk about economic opportunity and the needs of the poor in America. It’s a topic that too-often trips up conservative politicians – and it really shouldn’t, according to Arthur Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute.  A new book takes conservatives to task for failing to use the right words or the right policies that could make a difference for the poor.  Education Technology in Prisons (22:10) Guest: Brian Hill, Founder and CEO of Edovo  Each year, nearly 12 million people cycle through the US prison system. Most inmates pass their time unproductively, with television being a common pastime, and they often leave the correctional facility only to return within a few years. BYU Alumnus Brian Hill believes that time in prison should be put to good use.  Missing and Unidentified Persons' Conference (40:10) Guest: Helen Connelly, Program Administrator at the National Criminal Justice Training Center  Did you know that approximately 2,300 Americans go missing every day? For such a big number, we’re remarkably unaware of all the different stories of missing persons. Homeless people, veterans, undocumented immigrants, and those with physical or mental disabilities who go missing are often unrecognized or forgotten by the general public. The 9th Annual National Missing and Unidentified Persons’ Conference is currently underway in Atlanta, Georgia. The purpose of the conference is to inspire people to not give up hope on missing persons; to “identify ways to locate and protect missing persons and provide effective strategies for understanding how to best serve hidden victim populations and their families.”  Our American Heritage: The New Deal (52:25) Guest: Grant Madsen, Ph.D., History Professor at BYU  BYU history professor Grant Madsen shares insights from his US history courses. This week he sits down with BYU Radio’s Marcus Smith to discuss World War II ideologies.  Rebuilding in Nepal (1:17:37) Guest: Bishnu Adhikari, In-Country Director for Choice Humanitarian, www.choicehumanitarian.org   Four months since the large earthquake in Nepal and an estimated 10-percent of the nation’s population is still in need of shelter, food and basic medical care. Many of those people are in mountainous, hard to reach areas – exactly the areas where Bishnu Adhikari has been working feverishly to help his country rebuild.
