In the Rubble of Rana Plaza [07.17.2013]

Human rights advocate Charles Kernaghan has been holding secret meetings with garment workers in Bangladesh to document the harsh conditions they face. Also in this show: after Nike garment workers in Honduras were suddenly laid off, they turned to U.S. college students to help pressure for their pay; Eli Erlick was born a boy, but by the time she was in fifth grade, she knew she was meant to be a girl; and when musician Madeline Adams first heard the album “In the Airplane Over the Sea,” it was a leap into another world.

Music

“Build a House and Burn it Down” by The Horse Flies; “Heart Skipped a Beat” by The xx; “Oh Comely” by Neutral Milk Hotel; and “I Know That You Won't” and “Hurry Up Pronto” by Madeline Adams
