Nationwide protests surrounding grand jury decisions to not charge police officers in Ferguson, Missouri and Staten Island, New York have reached Baltimore. With us to talk about it is Karsonya Wise Whitehead, Assistant Professor of Communication and African American Studies at Loyola University Maryland. Also with us is Glenn Ivey, he’s a former State’s Attorney in Prince George’s County and a former federal prosecutor. And, Tom speaks with Ann Hornaday, movie critic for The Washington Post and Jed Dietz, director of the Maryland Film Festival, to discuss the films you should see right now. Then, Tom Hall and J. Wynn Rousuck havea conversation about "Newsies," which is playing at the Hippodrome through Dec. 7. Then, we remember Pearl Harbor with an interview with Tom Noble,  a World War II veteran. Plus, Nathan speaks with Hal Weaver to talk about the New Horizons spacecraft mission that's set to explore Pluto.
