Cory Doctorow: Aaron Swartz and Hacktivism
At the age of three, he taught himself how to read. At the age of 14 he helped developed RSS, the innovation that allows websites to gather content from other sites. From there, he joined Creative Commons, co-founded Reddit, and founded DemandProgress.org. Sadly, in early 2012, Aaron Swartz took his own life after facing upwards of 35 years in a federal penitentiary for downloading millions of files from JSTOR, an online journal storage archive. He was 26 years old. Cory Doctorow, a friend of Aaron's, sits down with Steve Paikin to talk about the life, work, and hopes of Aaron Swartz, and the bigger battle that his death underscores: those that see the potential of a free and open internet to transform society for the better and those that seek to regulate it.

My Struggle with Schizoaffective Disorder
Brooks Hunter was diagnosed with depression at 16. That marked the start of a long journey through medication, misdiagnoses, and hospitalization, until he was finally diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. A disorder he describes as one that makes it painful just to exist. Brooks has been on a dozen medications in search of the right combination that would relieve his symptoms. Even after hospitalization, he never felt the way he wanted to feel, and he tells a cautionary tale of what happens when one decides to deal with their illness on their own, without medication. After starting a cognitive behavioural therapy program, and finding the right medical treatment, Brooks' life dramatically turned around. In 2001, doctors changed Brooks' diagnosis to bipolar after his schizoaffective symptoms subsided. Today, he is a successful film and television director. His first feature film, Kenneyville, was released in 2011. This video is part of TVO's Mental Health Matters series - an in-depth exploration of the state of mental health in our society.

Lawrence Krauss: Decoding the Universe
In 2012, the biggest experiment in the history of physics paid off: scientists at the Hadron Collider discovered the Higgs-Boson, which helps explain why there is mass in the universe. In March, a team of scientists at the South Pole may have peered back to almost the beginning of time by finding evidence of "gravitational waves." If confirmed, according to theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss, "it will have increased our empirical window on the origins of the universe by a margin comparable to the amount it has grown in all of the rest of human history." He sits down with Steve Paikin to discuss these recent discoveries and our expanding knowledge of the cosmos.
