Herman Wallace, diagnosed with liver cancer is in hospice at Gabriel Hunt Prison in Lousiana. A federal judge reversed his case and had him released from custody Tuesday, however, the state DA appealed the order. He was released this evening. Robert King, our guest today, and present at the prison visiting Herman with Albert Woodfox, the other member of Angola 3, when the order was issued, compared the DA's refusal to let Herman go, to the civil war between the North and the South. In solitary confinement for over 40 years for their political beliefs, the A3 case is an example of judicial babysteps in cases involving poliical prisoners. Marina Drummer and Mwalimu Johnson will join Robert H. King to talk about Herman, the case, which includes Albert Woodfox, and breaking news about the federal court decision yesterday. Visit angola3.org  We close with an interview with Jeff Hull who speaks about his new film, THE INSTITUTE, dir. Spencer McCall, which chronicles the Jejune Institute, a mind-bending San Francisco phenomenon where 10,000 people became "inducted" without ever quite realizing what they'd signed up for. Counter-culture without the risk, the team at Nonchalance invited a lucky 10,000 eventual friends over to play, the game board the breath of San Francisco & Oakland combined. The joyride took players from busy corporated offices into monsuleums where the lonely made friends and the disenchanted found hope, a place where adults were encouraged to let their child out to play and they did without reigns. We speak to Jeff Hull, direcor of Nonchalance, about the film, the Institute, and what's next. Visit http://www.theinstitutemovie.com/
