Nico Perrino is the first guest on this week's program; the topic is "Mighty Ira," Perrino's new documentary on the life and times of Ira Glasser. 
Glasser led the American Civil Liberties Union from 1978 to 2001, and helped build it into the influential organization it is today. 

Then Mickey welcomes philosophy professor John K. Roth, who has dedicated most of his scholarly career to studying the Holocaust. 
He explains the conditions that gave rise to fascism and the genocide of Jews, and suggests what lessons modern societies should remember 
to avoid taking similar paths.
