50 Years of Your "Right to Remain Silent"; the Latest in Food Insecurity

Most of us know the Miranda rights -- our "right to remain silent" -- even if we've never been arrested. But do you know the full history behind them? This hour, we talk to a local public defender about the 50th anniversary of the landmark Supreme Court decision Miranda v. Arizona.

Later, we also look at some of the latest local and national trends in food insecurity. Did you know that an estimated 13 percent of Connecticut residents are food insecure? We find out why and what's being done to help those in need.


  • Tejas Bhatt - Assistant Public Defender from Hartford, Connecticut
  • Bernie Beaudreau - CEO of the Connecticut Food Bank
  • Renee Cody - Client of Master's Manna, a human service program in Meriden, Connecticut
  • Diane Whitmore Schanzenbach - Director of The Hamilton Project at the Brookings Institution
