Description

Till tells the story of Mamie Till-Mobley, whose decision to hold an open-casket funeral for her murdered son Emmett served as a catalyst for the civil rights movement. We talk with director Chinonye Chukwu.

Ken Tucker reviews Taylor Swift's Midnights.

Ramona Emerson's novel, Shutter, is about a police department photographer, who, like Emerson, grew up in the Navajo Nation. The protagonist is haunted by the ghosts of victims from scenes she's photographed. We talk with Emerson about her own experience in forensic photography and how it informed the book.

Why not use proper terminology in podcast episode descriptions, such as "martyr"? Will the writers of the podcast begin to breathe objective fresh air into a topic if they continue to receive funding, or was the show intended to be shallow and stale?
