  2. Gretchen T. Goldman, Ph.D., Research Director with The Center for Science and Democracy at the Union of Concerned Scientists talks about UCS’s response to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s decision to dismiss scientists from advisory boards and committees who have received EPA grants — and to appoint people with ties to EPA-regulated industries who may have conflicts of interest and be unqualified to assume these positions.
  3. Pia Gallegos, a longtime civil-rights lawyer and New Mexico activist, who was part of a four-person task force that wrote a recent analysis re: the status of the Democratic party after the 2016 election. She discusses the critique titled, “Autopsy: The Democratic Party in Crisis.”
  4. Lily Burana is author of four books, her latest titled, “Grace for Amateurs: Field Notes on a Journey Back to Faith.” A new voice for progressive Christians she discuss the rise of racist, white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups across the U.S. — and how progressive activists can effectively confront their message of hate and intolerance.

Hazel Kahan interviews The Suffolk Times executive editor Steve Wick and content director Grant Parpan, creators along with multimedia reporter Krysten Massa, of “Gone,” a multimedia investigation into the disappearance in 1966, of Cutchogue’s 38-year old Louise Pietrewicz. Launch of the film and online versions of the documentary along with the 10,000-word print story began on October 17, 2017. Multiple police agencies had been involved in the investigation, but no arrest was ever made, no body was ever found, no media outlet ever reported her disappearance. Author and veteran Newsday journalist, Mr. Wick, who learned about Ms. Pietrewicz’s disappearance years ago, made opening a Suffolk Times investigation into the matter his first order of business upon joining the staff as executive editor in June.
