  • President Trump Entertains Idea Of United States Joining The Trans-Pacific Partnership After Exiting Last Year

    President Trump is considering joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership after withdrawing from the multi-nation trade agreement last year. Trump tweeted that the agreement would have to be “substantially better than the deal” than President Obama agreed to while he was in office. But the reaction to the news was mixed from leaders of the countries who negotiated and signed onto the deal in 2016. We speak with Mark Copelovitch, associate professor of political science & public affairs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, about the TPP and what could happen next.

  • Stanley Kubrick's Music And Sound Choices Amplify The Ambiguity Of '2001: A Space Odyssey'

    Director Stanley Kubrick commissioned an original score to be written for “2001: A Space Odyssey”, only to change his mind and eventually use the temporary music tracks which were being used as placeholders. Those musical choices are arguably as important to the film’s narrative as what the viewer is seeing on the screen.

    We speak to an author about how Kubrick’s use of music and sound in the film set the stage for an hypnotic, philosophical journey through space.
