Starting on Monday Nov.17th, the clocks for Morning Edition, All Things Considered (both weekdays and weekends) and Weekend Edition will be changing.
Today's Engineer's Corner is co-authored with our Operations & Production Manager, James Baumgartner. He and I are the ones directly responsible for organizing all the clock changes' impact on Rhode Island Public Radio, and we've put together this synopsis of what the changes mean for our listeners.
Conflicts of interest in the awarding of state grants, violence in Providence, sexual assault allegations on college campuses -- those are the topics on this week's Political Roundtable.

The US Supreme Court made two high-profile decisions this week, and civil liberties again made for a hotly debate subject at the General Assembly this year. The head of the Rhode Island chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, Steve Brown, stopped by our studios to discuss those and other issues.
