According to a widely misunderstood Mayan prophecy, the world should have ended on December 21st. Jim Cotter speaks with Loa Traxler, the curator of MAYA 2012: Lords of Time, an exhibition at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia, to learn more.
Jim Cotter speaks with Philadelphia lawyer-turned-novelist James Kimmell, Jr. His first work of fiction, The Trial of Fallen Angels, is published by the high-profile Amy Einhorn Books/Putnam imprint. The novel follows the surreal journey of a trial lawyer searching for answers in the afterlife. There, she is called upon to return to her profession, prosecuting and defending other souls at their eternal judgment. At one point she even puts God on trial for the great flood.
