As NSA whistleblower and former Booz Allen employee, Edward Snowden, flees Hong Kong for destinations unknown, we interview philosopher Peter Ludlow on the rise of the corporate-surveillance state.

Then we pivot in time and tone for an extended discussion with Dr. Robert Adler Peckerar about the Helix Project, a kind of counter-Birthright program that takes students to Eastern Europe to learn about the Jewish culture that once thrived there.

Finally, we conclude with a conversation with Linda Sarsour, Palestinian-American community organizer and activist, about the New York City mayoral election, with specific emphasis on a question that has gotten sadly little attention: what are the candidates' positions on the New York City Police Department's surveillance of Muslims?
