First aired: April 25, 2012.
Will spring bring back Occupy Wall Street? We take a look with Village Voice reporter Nick Pinto and OWS organizer Cecily McMillian of the Young Democratic Socialists. Then CUNY Graduate Center Professor David Harvey, author of Rebel Cities, provides some context for the movement. Next, a look at how the plummeting costs of data storage will soon enable governments to catalogue everything their citizens do with John Villasenor, Professor of engineering at UCLA and a Fellow at the Brookings Institution. Brian's brother Warren Lehrer joins us with tabla player Deep Singh to talk about 1001 Voices: A Symphony for Queens, to be performed Sunday at Queens College. Editor Andrew Blauner discusses his new book Central Park: An Anthology, and Revolutionary Road author John Burnham Schwartz reads from his contribution to the volume.
