Pete Gokey looks at the US Supreme Court’s upcoming review of the federal Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Prop 8. Phil Duran of OutFront Minnesota and Amy Bergquist of the Advocates for Human Rights provide explanations, analysis and insight into the cases.

Kristina puts together another grab-bag of sorts – a show of singers who were either her blind dates (CDs copied and given to her by friends) or whom she casually picked up (from a shelf in a music store, never having heard of them before).

This week on MinneCulture: “The Walk to School,” an audio documentary about a Minneapolis family’s decision to attend public school outside its immediate residential zone. Producer Ralph L. Crowder III explores education and school choice through the lens of Monique, a single parent raising her daughter Amaree, and her niece Leslie. “The Walk to School” is a day-in-the-life account of how the family copes with the public education achievement gap, and what it’s doing to create better opportunities for the next generation. Ralph Crowder is an independent producer from Minneapolis who specializes in local and national education issues. MinneCulture airs every Monday and Wednesday evening from 7:30-8pm on KFAI, and is made possible by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
