SORT BY Relevancy
We look at a lot of scenarios for what might happen in the future -- cool technological developments, major advances in science, new evolutionary developments for humans and for other species on this planet -- but are there any future developments that we can say with any certainty will happen?
Hosts Stephen Gordon and Phil Bowermaster introduce the Inevitablity Scale, a tool for gauging whether a specific future outcome is inevitable. We will take a look at how some future events stack up when measured for inevitability:
The Next Presidential Election
The End of the World
The First Manned Flight to Mars
The Emergence of Greater-than-Human Artificial Intelligence
What can we say for sure that we know is going to happen? Tune in and explore.
One year ago today Tina and Ethan Anderson were murdered and left to burn in James Lee DiMaggio's Boulevard, California home. Here we are a year later and Hannah Anderson is still being declared as a victim in ever sense of the word -- and Friday's documentary did well in polishing her image. Let's talk about the case.

Case - R&B Artist 2:15pm
Armed with the spirit of his greatest influence, Michael Jackson, Case’s love affair with music revealed itself through his writing and after stints with R&B group “Future” and a duo called “Black”, Case got work co-writing and singing background for artist including Usher, Christopher Williams and Al B. Sure. It was a song written by Faith Evans which would be his professional career catalyst and lead to Russell Simmons signing him to Def Jam Records. “Everything changed with this deal,” says Case, “I was in heaven, on cloud nine because all of the faith and hard work was finally paying off.” With a new creative approach and the universe in alignment his latest project “Heaven’s Door” reveals his maturity, growth and renewed love affair with his craft. “If I knew then what I know now I wouldn't have made my music so dark, but this time around I’m at peace.

This week we will be discussing the David Thorne Case with advocates Sue Gless Thorne and Lynne Blanchard.
David Thorne was convicted in January of 2000, and sentenced to life without the possibility of parole, for allegedly hiring an acquaintance to kill his son's mother, Yvonne Layne, in March of 1999.
Thorne has proclaimed his innocence from the beginning, and his supporters contend that there is overwhelming evidence that he was falsely arrested and wrongfully convicted. Thorne, who had a iron-clad alibi, was implicated by Joseph Wilkes, a mentally and emotionally impaired man, after Wilkes was arrested and interrogated by police officers. After being threatened with the death penalty, Wilkes told his interrogators that he was hired by Thorne to commit the murder. The problem was that Wilkes was unable to provide accurate details of the crime scene. According to Forensic Scientist Brent Turvey, Joseph Wilkes got every detail of the crime wrong, except the type of weapon used.
Shockingly, the jury bought the confession of Wilkes, despite his glaring inconsistencies, putting David Thorne in prison for the rest of his life.
We will be taking calls in the final segment. Please call in with any comments or questions: (347) 850-1478.
Please visit The Wrongful Conviction of David Thorne to learn more about this case.
This week on Correcting The System of Unequal Justice:
Gerald E. Rose and Carla B., open up the phone lines to discuss the situation in Ferguson, Ohio -- stemming from the Michael Brown shooting. Call in & sound off @ 718-664-6543.
Update on the Michael Brown case:
Missouri Senators Claire McCaskill (D) and Roy Blunt (R) released a statement on the case:
“I join all Missourians in remembering the family of Michael Brown & the Ferguson community as they grieve the tragic loss of this young man,” Blunt said. “His recent high school graduation should have been a beginning of better things.”
Police say that Brown was killed while struggling for an officer’s gun.
“As a mother I grieve for this child and his family,” McCaskill said.
The Brown shooting may bring back memories of the Feb. 2012 Florida shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watch officer George Zimmerman. Martin’s death sparked nationwide alarm, and Zimmerman’s case (he was acquitted) was addressed by President Obama.
Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon called for the independent investigation.
“It is vital that the facts about this case are gathered in a thorough, transparent and impartial manner, in which the public has complete confidence. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this tragic event, and I ask St. Louis County residents to exercise patience and respect for their neighbors as federal authorities work to get to the bottom of what happened through this comprehensive, independent review.”
