What role does gender play and why is it so ignored by the media?
How is empathy bred out of men, and how can we restore it?
How can we make people feel the deaths of thousands of children in Afghanistan and Palestine, or in our own inner cities, as acutely as those in Newtown, Connecticut?

These and other questions are explored in this engaging half hour discussion.
