PRX Faces History

Hi friend of PRX,

The new JFK special (below) has been months in the making – it contains voices never heard, memories never shared. Historic. A big welcome to Ken Rudin, the Political Junkie, now on PRX! Speaking of politics, look at the latest IEEE Spectrum special below. And HUGE congrats to the Third Coast award winners and friends.
