Prospects for Immigration Reform in 2014 | Radio Times | WHYY

Prospects for Immigration Reform in 2014 February 3, 2014 Guests: Michael Matza and Peter Spiro In last week’s State of the Union address, President Obama exhorted lawmakers to fix the country’s broken immigration system. The House Republicans recently released a set of core principles on immigration, focusing on “dreamers” and the ways that undocumented immigrants can live in the country legally. States have forged ahead independently and have implemented their own initiatives to address the 11 million undocumented immigrants who are living within their borders. Will 2014 be the year in which the United States can successfully tackle immigration reform? In this hour of Radio Times, we are joined by MICHAEL MATZA, The Philadelphia Inquirer staff writer on immigration, and PETER SPIRO, the Charles Weiner professor in international law at Temple University’s Beasley School of Law. They’ll discuss state and federal efforts for reform, the debate over whether legalization should include a path to citizenship, and what’s happening in the Philadelphia region.

Good Guys | This American Life

Lots of men think of themselves as "good guys." But what does it actually take to be one? To be a truly good guy.

Episode 513: "129 Cars" - bleeped | This American Life

Our episode about a Long Island car dealership included lots of curse words. On the radio of course we have to bleep those, but we think it gives a better sense of what the place is like if you hear what the people actually said. So the language is unbleeped in the online version of the episode. http://www.thisamericanlife.org/513bleeped

129 Cars | This American Life

We spend a month at a Jeep dealership on Long Island as they try to make their monthly sales goal: 129 cars. If they make it, they'll get a huge bonus from the manufacturer, possibly as high as $85,000 — enough to put them in the black for the month. If they don't make it, it'll be the second month in a row. http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/513/129-cars

When Patents Attack! | This American Life

Why would a company rent an office in a tiny town in East Texas, put a nameplate on the door, and leave it completely empty for a year? The answer involves a controversial billionaire physicist in Seattle, a 40 pound cookbook, and a war waging right now, all across the software and tech industries. http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/441/when-patents-attack

One of the country's most popular over-the-counter painkillers — acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol — also kills the most people, according to data from the federal government. Over 150 Americans die each year on average after accidentally taking too much. And it requires a lot less to endanger you than you may know. http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/505/use-only-as-directed

I Was Just Trying To Help | This American Life

Stories of people doing the noble thing and stepping up to help, only to find out that others think what they're doing isn't helping at all. Planet Money looks at a charity that's decided to just give people money, and a sheriff in California devises a plan to let farmers grow weed — as long as they register with him. http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/503/i-was-just-trying-to-help
