Here are some conversations and interviews that caught our attention during the week ending April 8, 2011.
Our suggestions this week:
- Minnesota Public Radio – one of the best public radio stations in the country – is my station of choice when I am in the care. Earlier this week, they featured live content from the National Press Club. IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman shared his vision of the future of the tax system. You can listen to his comments here.
- A thread to the Middle East uprisings is a desire for better human rights. Millions of ordinary people have revolted against their governments. Could all this turmoil make human rights the heart of global governance and policy-making? Another conversation on Minnesota Public Radio featuring Mary Robinson, former president of Ireland and United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights and David Wippman, Dean of the University of Minnesota Law School and an expert on human rights law. You can listen to the discussion here.
