The Global Philosopher: Should Borders Matter?. Michael Sandel explores the philosophical justifications made for national borders. Using a pioneering state-of-the-art studio at the Harvard Business School, Professor Sandel is joined by 60 participants from over 30 countries in a truly global digital space. Is there any moral distinction between a political refugee and an economic migrant? If people have the right to exit a country, why not a right to enter? Do nations have the right to protect the affluence of their citizens? And is there such a thing as a 'national identity'? These are just some of the questions addressed by Professor Sandel in this first edition of The Global Philosopher.Audience producer: Louise ColettaProducer: David EdmondsEditor: Richard Knight(Image taken by Rose Lincoln)

In part two of my interview with author Mike Campbell about his book "Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last" we briefly cover again the circumstances of Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan's disappearance.Mike then recounts the timeline of the official narrative and the mainstream acceptance of other ideas like the crashed-and-sank hypothesis and the Gardner Island or Nikumaroro-landing hypothesis and why they have no merit.
