PBS talk show, Third Rail, seeks big ques­tions be­hind the news

Waterloo Region Record - - ARTS & LIFE -

The “third rail” in the new PBS talk show with that name rep­re­sents the con­tentious top­ics brought up, like race, ly­ing and Amer­ica’s role in the world. Show mod­er­a­tor Car­los Wat­son and cre­ator Denise DiIanni wanted a pro­gram that gets to the heart of is­sues in the news and ad­dresses them with peo­ple who aren’t the usual sus­pects on top­i­cal pro­grams. It is mid­way through a two-month run Fri­day nights on PBS. Writ­ers Mal­colm Glad­well and Rox­ane Gay, Mo Rocca of CBS News and Har­vard ed­u­cated ac­tor Hill Harper have de­bated is­sues on the show.
