The Scramble: David Folkenflik, Smart Guns, and Bearden
This hour on The Scramble our superguest is David Folkenflik. I don't have to tell you who David Folkenflik is, do I? I mean, you're public radio listeners. The superguest always sets the agenda, and David wants to talk about new journalism start-ups like Vox, Five-Thirty Eight, First Look, and about what middle-aged digital brand names like Slate are doing to survive.
Later in the show we look at smart guns -- just like regular handguns, but only one person can fire them. It seems like an interesting idea, but one gun dealer tried to sell them and got death threats.
Finally, we talk about the strange story of two Romare Bearden murals you never knew existed.
