    Radio Specials Making Oprah: Part One It's easy to look back at The Oprah Winfrey Show and assume its vast success and cultural impact was all preordained. But Making Oprah reveals the show's scrappy roots and improbable rise through conversations with Winfrey and the mostly female team that produced her show. In exclusive interviews with WBEZ Chicago, Oprah Winfrey tells the behind-the-scenes story of her iconic TV talk show, along with producers, staffers, TV executives, and ratings rival Phil Donahue. The series chronicles the show's roots in Chicago, its rise to daytime dominance, and the powerful sway Winfrey came to have in American life.

    Forum Transportation Advocates on Caltrain's Future as Trump Administration Delays Funding Arguing that the South Bay's transportation system is breaking down, the urban planning think tank SPUR released an ambitious proposal for the region Thursday. In its Caltrain Corridor VisionPlan, SPUR proposes improvements to Highway 101 and calls for Caltrain to quintuple its ridership, expand service into downtown San Francisco and upgrade infrastructure. The SPUR report follows the Trump Administration's decision last week to suspend $647 million in funds for Caltrain's electrification, a move the rail agency says will hinder its ability to make needed improvements. We discuss the future of Caltrain.

    The California Report Know Your Rights, Oroville Aftermath, and More With all the changes to national immigration policy, there are questions about how Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, operates. In the Central Valley, immigrant rights attorneys are trying to get people ready for ramped up enforcement by teaching them how to interact with immigration agents. Plus, in Butte County, workers continue to reinforce the crippled Oroville Dam spillways. The damage threatened a major flood event and triggered mass evacuations earlier this month. Its made Oroville the most talked-about dam in the nation. Maybe less talked-about has been the herculean effort mounted by hundreds of people who responded to the crisis. This week marks the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, which authorized the incarceration of Japanese-Americans. And it's sparked a lot of artistic projects...including one by two photo historians. They're trying to keep the voices -- and faces -- of those interned Japanese Americans alive. Plus, politics takes center stage at the Silicon Valley Theater Company and our monthly review of new music from all over the map.

    Commonwealth Club Artificial Intelligence: What Everyone Needs to Know Over the coming decades, artificial intelligence will profoundly impact the way we live, work, wage war, play, seek a mate, educate our young and care for our elderly. It is likely to greatly increase our aggregate wealth, but it will also upend our labor markets, reshuffle our social order, and strain our private and public institutions. Eventually it may alter how we see our place in the universe, as machines pursue goals independent of their creators and outperform us in domains previously believed to be the sole dominion of humans. Jerry Kaplan is widely known as an artificial intelligence expert, serial entrepreneur, technical innovator, educator, bestselling author and futurist. He co-founded four Silicon Valley startups, two of which became publicly traded companies, and teaches at Stanford University. Join Kaplan for an illuminating conversation about the future of artificial intelligence and how much humans should entrust to machines.
