Smoke Screen: Uninterrupted: Rama was a spiritual teacher in the 80s and 90s who inspired many of his students while helming what many of his detractors would describe as a cult. He defied society’s archetypal vision of a New Age leader, eschewing minimalism for wealth and celebrity. He was also a man ahead of his time, encouraging his students to develop careers in computer science before that was mainstream. For some, following Rama’s lead worked out spiritually, and financially too. But for others, Rama’s actions contradicted his cool persona; some eventually came forward with accusations of abuse, others vanished, whistleblowers went to the media, and the group began to shrink and splinter. In this 10-part investigative series, Jonathan Hirsch explores the life, death and impact of Rama.. Production Partner: Neon Hum

Spectacle: Uninterrupted: Reality TV is dismissed as guilty pleasure, low brow… even trash.

On this season, join host Mariah Smith as she dissects the history of the genre one show at a time, revealing how it’s shaped our culture and how our culture shaped it. Production Partner: Neon Hum

Something Rhymes EXTRA: Susie Dent and Gyles Brandreth invite you to enhance your vocabulary, uncover the hidden origins of language and share their love of words. Production Partner: Somethin’ Else
