  • Twenty years after the epic O.J. Simpson Ford Bronco car chase, journalist Jere Hester argues that the media landscape has never been the same since. Hester argues that the televised pursuit kicked celebrity culture into high gear and paved the way towards reality TV. He also says Simpson's much-watched trial marked a turning point that melded fame and infamy into one.
     
  • Brent talks to Brazil's bossa nova king, Sergio Mendes. His music has always combined the traditional music of his country with American influences, and that's still the case on his latest album, Magic, which pairs him with younger musicians -- and Mendes fans -- like singer John Legend and will.i.Am from the Black-Eyed Peas.
     
  • South African photographer Zanele Muholi, who chronicles the faces of a community under threat, gay and lesbian South Africans.
