Special Episode with District Attorney Rachael Rollins

District Attorney Rachael Rollins joins us to talk about her controversial plans to implement criminal justice reform across Suffolk County by reducing arrest and incarceration of, among others, low-level drug offenders and people suffering from mental health issues, with the intended goad of getting them help. She also intends to correct racial and ethnic disparities in the criminal justice system and find alternatives to traditional prosecution.

American Routes 12:00 pm
American Routes at the Movies

We’re taking a trip to Tinseltown to explore the music that brings movies to life. We’ll hear from trumpeter and composer Terence Blanchard, who worked on soundtracks for almost all of Spike Lee’s films, including 2018’s Oscar-nominated BlacKkKlansman. Then, we delve into the life and music of pianist Don Shirley in Green Book, and revisit a jaunty conversation with the Coen Brothers about the songs featured in their offbeat films, such as The Big Lebowski, True Grit, and O Brother, Where Art Thou? Plus, music from Pulp Fiction, Cadillac Records, The Big Easy, and Baby Driver. So please, silence your cell phones, and set your radio for “picture” on American Routes.
