The State of Things - Live from the UpStage Cabaret in Greensboro.
--Tracking Terrorism: Veryan Khan was a graduate student in Atlanta during the 1996 Olympic Bombings. It was then that she became fascinated with the impenetrability of terrorism, and she was determined to study it. Her website TRACterrorism.org strives to be a comprehensive database of terrorist groups. Khan joins host Frank Stasio to discuss her work in elucidating terrorism and organizing the information by ideology, targets and tactics.
--Music of the Mesoamerican Reef: Patricia Gray's job is to listen to the water. She is a biomusic researcher at University of North Carolina-Greensboro's Music Research Institute. Gray uses hydrophones to record and analyze sounds in the water around the Mesoamerica Reef, the world's second largest reef system off the coast of Mexico. She and her student Claire Wright will join host Frank Stasio to discuss the natural music of the reef and the potential for introducing sounds to preserve the fragile underwater ecosystem.
