On today's podcast, Jason Pleau, the man accused of killing a Woonsocket man, has changed his plea to not guilty in order to avoid the death penalty, and a new mural has been unveiled on an interstate 95 underpass in Providence.

And our political analyst Scott MacKay sits down with education reporter Elisabeth Harrison to discuss the state of the Office of Higher Education in Rhode Island.

Plus, we have this week's This I Believe essay.

And we continue our series on the rise in crime during the summer, with the next installment of Hot City: Crime in Providence, where we talk with the executive director of the Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence.
