The FX/Hulu series Reservation Dogs follows four teens on an Oklahoma Indian reservation who are frustrated and alienated, caught between what's left of traditional Native culture on the reservation and the broader pop culture. We talk with co-creator and showrunner Sterlin Harjo about his own upbringing in Indian Territory and how he was inspired by the storytellers in his family.
Ken Tucker reviews some previously unreleased early Lou Reed demos.
Also, Buzz Bissinger, author of the classic high school football book, Friday Night Lights, tells the story of college football stars-turned Marines who endured some of the most savage fighting in World War II. Bissinger's new book is The Mosquito Bowl.
