We continue our Through the Lens series Tuesday with "The Kill Team." A U.S. Army platoon made headlines in 2010 after if was learned they'd murdered several innocent Afghan civilians. In his film, director Dan Krauss examines those events and their fallout through the story of Adam Winfield, one of the guilty soldiers. Winfield tried to alert the military of the atrocity he and his comrades committed. His warnings went unheeded and Winfield found himself the target of a massive war crimes investigation. Krauss joins us to discuss his film, which explores the intersection of morality, conflict, and violence.

The Man Who Never Died

Joe Hill's funeral in Chicago, 1915
Library of Congress

Almost a century ago, labor icon Joe Hill was executed by firing squad for the murder of a Salt Lake grocer. His controversial conviction rested largely on two pieces of rickety evidence: the gunshot wound he sustained the night of the murder and the IWW membership card in his wallet. The writer William Adler has uncovered evidence debunking the case against Hill. He'll join Doug to talk about his book, The Man Who Never Died. (Rebroadcast)

Speaking American, Speaking Utahn

Did you go to “high skull” instead of “high school?” Maybe you put “melk” in your coffee instead of “milk”. Have you seen a cougar “ki’uhn” in the “mou’uhns” of “Lay-uhn?” If so, you speak like a Utahn, especially if you call fried bread a “scone.” In the age of globalization and cultural flattening, regional accents and vocabularies are thriving, especially in urban areas. Friday, we’re talking about the way we talk, not just on the Wasatch Front, but across America, and we hope to hear from you. [Rebroadcast]
