Intelligence Squared U.S. Debates: We Shouldn't Genetically Modify Food?

Airs Sunday, March 29 at 6 p.m. Genetically modified (GM) foods have been around for decades, and they are developed for a number of different reasons—to fight disease, enhance flavor, resist pests, improve nutrition, survive drought. Across the country and around the world, communities are fighting the cultivation of genetically engineered crops. Are they safe? How do they impact the environment? Can they improve food security? Is the world better off with or without GM food? The debaters are Robert Fraley, Charles Benbrook, Alison Van Eenennaam, and Margaret Mellon.

Savannah Music Festival: Bela Fleck Abigail Washburn

Airs Thursday, March 26, at 8 p.m. Though they've played as a duo since they first met, trying impromptu duets at picking parties, doing a few tunes at benefits and playing occasional radio shows together, that was long before they got married and took the show on the road.
