This edition of the show is about "Trial and Error" — from the courtroom, to the science lab, to the kitchen. We'll talk with a researcher at Georgetown whose discoveries may allow doctors to avoid much of the trial-and-error involved in treating cancer. We'll meet a man who was tried and convicted for a crime he didn't commit — and has since fought to prevent other people from going through the same thing. And we'll engage in some theatrical experimentation at D.C.'s Studio Theatre.
