Franklin's Scientist Pal,Ticketmaster, and a Filmmaker in Seattle

Diana Opong

Joseph Priestley was an 18th century scientist, radical thinker, and pal of Ben Franklin. Writer Steven Johnson says Priestley's story matters in part because it shows us the merging of science and politics. He says we could use a little more of that these days. Also, Ticketmaster is trying to merge with the biggest concert promoter, Live Nation. How will that affect the local music scene? We'll explore with blogger Dan Halligan. Plus, Lebanese film producer John Sinno moved to Seattle because it reminded him so much of his hometown of Beirut. Sinno will tell us why he thought Seattle would be a good city to base his film company.
