On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
A powerful documentary, “3 1/2 Minutes, 10 Bullets,” about a racially charged killing of teen Jordan Davis over loud music, is featured in this year’s AFI Docs festival. Jordan Davis’ father, Ron Davis, joins us to talk about his activism after his son’s death, as well as the shooting of 9 in Charleston, South Carolina last night. Other AFI Docs festival films include Alex Gibney’s probing “Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine,” and two-time Academy Award winner Barbara Koppel’s “Hot Type: 150 Years of the Nation.”
