5.23.17: Spring Picks

May 23, 2017

It's spring picks week on Word of Mouth. The crew has scoured the airwaves and handpicked stories and interviews that will entertain, delight, and maybe even challenge you. Up first, a reporter takes an unflinching look at an uncomfortable topic: what is whiteness?  

Then, a candid and compelling conversation with an ex-con who wants to have his swastika tattoo covered up.

Finally we head to The Magic Castle—a private club for magicians in Los Angeles—to find out what distinguishes a delightful trick from a dirty con.
