It’s summer time. Sheilah asks what kind of parenting, play and approach to childhood free time is productive for kids.

Then, when Darius Clark Monroe was 16, he robbed a bank with two friends. He was caught and served three years in prison. Years later, with a film camera in-hand, he returned to the scene to explore why he did what he did. Sheilah talks with him.

Plus, theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck reviews “The World Is Round” a stage adaptation of Gertrude Stein’s novella of the same name, brought to life by two Baltimore theatre groups, The Acme Corporation and Annex Theater.

And, Baltimore novelist Jill Morrow, who grew up in Annapolis, tells Sheilah why she set her latest twisty tale of fortunes and séances in Newport, Rhode Island.
