February 11, 2017 – “Story in the Public Square”
Politicians and voters may hate crime, but American audiences can’t get enough of shows like CSI or Law and Order. This week on “Story in the Public Square,” hosts Jim Ludes and G. Wayne Miller are joined by Marc Smerling, an Emmy-winning filmmaker who has intimately chronicled some of America’s most notorious criminals.
Smerling is an award-winning writer, screen producer and cinematographer – and most recently, writer, producer and co-host with filmmaker Zac Stuart-Pontier of the new podcast series, “Crimetown.”
“Story in the Public Square” airs on Rhode Island PBS in Rhode Island and southern Massachusetts on Sundays at 11 a.m. and is rebroadcast Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. An audio version of the program airs Saturdays at 8:30 a.m. & 6:30 p.m. ET and Sundays at 1:30 a.m. & 12:30 p.m. ET on SiriusXM’s popular P.O.T.U.S. (Politics of the United States), channel 124.
Story in the Public Square is a partnership between the Pell Center and The Providence Journal. The initiative aims to study, celebrate, and tell stories that matter.
