POV: 15 to Life: Kenneth’s Story

9 pm Monday, Aug. 4, on WILL-TV: Follow a boy’s struggle for redemption in a place that routinely condemns children to die in prison.

Kenneth Young

Does sentencing a teenager to life without parole serve our society well? The United States is the only country in the world that routinely condemns children to die in prison. This is the story of one of those children, now a young man, seeking a second chance in Florida. At age 15, Kenneth Young received four consecutive life sentences for a series of armed robberies. Imprisoned for more than a decade, he believed he would die behind bars. Now a U.S. Supreme Court decision could set him free. “15 to Life: Kenneth’s Story” follows Young’s struggle for redemption, revealing a justice system with thousands of young people serving sentences intended for society’s most dangerous criminals.

Changes to the WILL-AM lineup

The Moth Radio Hour joins WILL-AM's schedule this month at 10 am Tues. (repeated 1 pm Sat.). More schedule changes here.

The Moth Radio Hour joins WILL-AM’s schedule this month at 10 am Tuesdays, as NPR’s Tell Me More goes out of production. The Moth Radio Hour features true stories told live on stage without scripts, notes, props or accompaniment. Each show mixes humorous, heartbreaking, and poignant tales that captivate, surprise, and delight audiences with their honesty, bravery and humor.

The Moth was originally formed by the writer George Dawes Green as an intimate gathering of friends on a porch (where moths would flutter in through a hole in the screen). Today, The Moth is a nonprofit organization with ongoing programs such as StorySlam competitions that contribute their best stories to The Moth Radio Hour.

 “I love the feeling of The Moth,” says program producer Jay Allison. “You can feel the risk each storyteller takes, getting up before us to recount something spellbinding and real. It makes you recognize how rare it is to hear truly honest, vulnerable voices on the airwaves.” 

To replace Tell Me More, we’ll be offering a different program each day at 10 am Monday through Friday, with some of our most popular weekend programs repeated to give you another chance to hear them.

In other changes, This American Life moves from 1 pm to noon Saturday; Travel with Rick Steves moves from noon Saturday to 6 pm Sunday.

Here's the rest of the 10 am weekdays schedule:

Mondays: On the Media

While maintaining the civility and fairness, On the Media tackles sticky issues with a frankness and transparency .

Wednesdays: Big Picture Science

Big Picture Science takes on big questions by interviewing leading researchers and weaving together their stories of discovery in a clever and off-kilter narrative style. The show reveals science as an adventure.

Thursdays: TED Radio Hour

Hosted by Guy Raz , the program is a journey through fascinating ideas: astonishing inventions, fresh approaches to old problems, new ways to think and create. Based on talks given by riveting speakers on the world-renowned TED stage, each show is centered on a common theme, and injects soundscapes and conversations that bring these ideas to life.

Fridays: State of the Re:Union

Hosted by Al Letson, the program takes a journalistic, documentary-style approach, with each episode focusing on one city or region.

Doc Martin starts Aug. 7

8 pm Thursdays on WILL-TV: Adventures of a socially challenged doctor in a Cornish village.

Martin Clunes as Doc Martin

DOC MARTIN is a catchy comedy drama starring Martin Clunes (Men Behaving Badly). The series follows the celebrated London surgeon, Dr. Martin Ellingham, whose truculence and tactless manner causes mayhem in a small Cornish community. After retraining as a general practitioner, he gets a job in the beautiful but sleepy village of Portwenn replacing their deceased local doctor. But his abrasive personality doesn’t exactly mesh with the pace of life in Cornwall.
