OST Third Anniversary: Best Of Show Pt. 1

"On Second Thought" is celebrating its third anniversary this week. The show launched its first broadcast on GPB on October 20, 2014. To celebrate three amazing years, we’re re-airing our best segments in a two part broadcast. Here are the best picks for today: The violence in Charlottesville, Virginia this summer renewed conversations about race relations, and have left some searching for answers on how to de-radicalize people. That’s something Shannon Martinez of Athens knows first-hand. She was a skinhead for several years, but managed to leave that life behind her. We talk with her and Sammy Rangel of Life After Hate, a group that helps people move away from hate and violent extremism. We add two more songs to our Georgia Playlist. Killer Mike is one of Georgia’s most beloved musicians. He is half of the rap duo Run the Jewels and founder of Grind Time Official Records. Killer Mike brings us tunes by Goodie Mob and the Allman Brothers. If you want to see theater in one of its most

Robots, Robbery, And Addiction: Revisiting Three Of Our Favorite Conversations

This week on "Two Way Street," we're listening back to three of our conversations with some of the bravest, most inventive women to ever step into our studio: writers Molly Brodak and Melissa Febos, and robotics engineer Ayanna Howard. Last fall, Molly Brodak joined us to discuss her memoir, " Bandit: A Daughter's Memoir ." She tells us about the first time she realized her father was a liar. He would go on to rob 11 banks outside of Detroit and become known as the "Super Mario Brothers Bandit" to the FBI and local news media. After his stint in prison, Brodak's father used her and her sister's social security cards to open credit cards. But despite all of the lying and stealing, Brodak tells us why she still loves her father. Then we hear from author Melissa Febos , who spoke to us last April about her memoir, " Abandon Me: Memoirs ." We dive into her past as a heroin addict, who despite her addiction, was a straight-A college student. Plus she tells us about her time as a

OST Third Anniversary: Best Of Show Pt. 2

This week "On Second Thought" celebrates three years on the air. The show launched October 20, 2014. To celebrate, we’re re-airing a few of our best segments. Do you have a favorite segment or episode? Let us know. Actor George Takei first came to fame as a young Sulu in the original Star Trek series. But he’s since become an active voice in promoting equal rights for LGBT people. We spoke to Takei earlier this year when the play “Allegiance,” was showing in Atlanta movie theaters. The play is inspired by Takei’s experiences in a U.S. internment camp during World War II. Belief and fact don’t always line up. An Emory University class dives into the convoluted world of conspiracy theories, and how they influence American politics. In April, we talked with instructor Felix Harcourt and two of his students, Carolyn Koehnke and Laura Marquez, about the seedy world of conspiracy theories. Last year, the U.S. Universities Debating Championship was held at Morehouse College, the first
