Coming up on Connections: Wednesday, May 7th

First hour: More Supreme Court analysis; understanding global health problems

Second hour: All about the Spider-Man film

We open the first hour with a conversation with Dahlia Lithwick, Slate's reporter on Supreme Court decisions. Lithwick will respond to the comments on Tuesday's show from Greece town supervisor Bill Reilich and attorney Brett Harvey, both of whom support the Supreme Court's decision to allow prayer at Greece town meetings.

Later in the hour we have a conversation with Dr. Jim Sherry. After years of working for the UN and other global agencies, Dr. Sherry is now a professor of Global Health at George Washington University. He's in Rochester as a guest of the World Affairs Council, and he talks to us about what we get wrong when it comes to approaching global health problems.

In our second hour, it's all about the new Spider-Man film. Parts were shot in Rochester. Is the movie any good? Jack Garner and Mike DiGiorgio will have their reviews. We'll also explore whether film production is a net positive or negative for cities that host Hollywood crews. Did Rochester benefit? Reporter Rachel Barnhart weighs in.
