Arts & Ideas: October 17th, 2021

This week on Arts and Ideas:

7pm "Fuhgeddaboudit." From ancient libraries to the filing cabinet to Google, Big Picture Science explores the history of how humans collect and remember facts. Plus, could today’s technology affect how we memorize new information?

8pm Another episode from the Civics 101 series, which focuses on civil rights and historic Supreme Court decisions. This week: Korematsu v United States, the mass internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, and when the court defers to the military during wartime.

9pm Stories of women crossing a line, blazing a trail, changing the tide. "The Hidden World of Girls," produced by the Kitchen Sisters.

10pm PRX Remix. "Diabetic Halloween" and other surprising stories on shuffle.

That's all on Arts and Ideas, every Sunday night from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm.
