Adolescence is typically portrayed as a time of out of control emotions, fed by hormones, that is, at best, survived. In the last two decades, there has been a tremendous “growth in the scientific study of adolescence” and this has enabled researchers and parents to better understand what is really happening in the teen brain. It turns out that adolescence is a time of heightened neuroplasticity and it is an exciting time when the teenager learns some of the most important strategies for success in adulthood. Tune in tonight for an exciting conversation with LAURENCE STEINBERG, Ph. D. author of AGE OF OPPORTUNITY: LESSONS FROM THE NEW SCIENCE OF ADOLESCENCE.

Beginning in January 1692, Salem Village in colonial Massachusetts witnessed the largest and most lethal outbreak of witchcraft in early America. Villagers—mainly young women—suffered from unseen torments that caused them to writhe, shriek, and contort their bodies, complaining of pins stuck into their flesh and of being haunted by specters. Believing that they suffered from assaults by an invisible spirit, the community began a hunt to track down those responsible for the demonic work. Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30 when Al speaks with Salem State University professor and author Emerson Baker about his new book, A Storm of Witchcraft. Hear how this period in Bay State history still haunts us to this day.
