Revoking Security Clearance and Dealing with an American ISIS Fighter Guest: Eric Jensen, JD, Professor of International Law, BYU J. Reuben Clark Law School President Trump has revoked the security clearance of former CIA director John Brennan. Also the US is involved in some thorny negotiations over what to do with a captured ISIS fighter who has dual American and Saudi citizenship. Right now the US would really like to drop him off in Syria and be done with him. Also this week, Congress passed its annual Defense Authorization Act which charts a course for the coming year’s $700 billion in defense budget. Even as President Trump signed the bill, he said he had no intention of following many of the provisions in it. What should be understood from these recent events? For Religious Families, Family Prayer Can Be A Glue Guest: Joe Chelladurai, Research Assistant, PhD Student, School of Family Life, Brigham Young University Most families have rituals that bring them closer together. I loved going to the park with my parents and siblings to play softball as a family. Some research published recently in the Journal of Family Psychology found that in religious households, the ritual of praying together is particularly effective in strengthening relationships. Electric Light is a Blight to Health Guest: Richard G. ‘Bugs’ Stevens, PhD, Professor of Community Medicine and Healthcare, School of Medicine, University of Connecticut The world’s biggest cities - Shanghai, London, New York – have grown even brighter since LED lighting arrived on the scene and made it possible to keep things glowing with a lot less energy. That’s better for the environment – but maybe not for our health. How damaging is the "relentless attack on night" brought on by artificial light?

In a country that sends more people per-capita than any other, these two states are competing for the incarceration capital of the world. Eve Abrams is producer of the “Unprisoned” podcast, which airs on WWNO public radio in New Orleans. It tells the stories of individuals impacted by the criminal justice system and mass incarceration in Louisiana. Preserving the Letterpress (Originally aired: 6/20/18) Guests: Erin Beckloff, Co-Director of “PRESSING ON: The Letterpress Film”; Gregory Walters, Long-time Printer, Featured in the Documentary Computers and easy-to-use software have turned the whole world into graphic designers capable of making a decent poster or party invitation from a vast array of templates. So maybe that’s why there’s such a fascination right now with old-school printing and design. Owning a vintage letterpress bestows all kinds of hipster cred. “Pressing On” is available on iTunes and Amazon.
