- The annual student film showcase "I Dream in Widescreen" returns to The Fox Tucson Theatre on Saturday, April 27th, bringing together the best creations from the University of Arizona School of Theater, Film & Television. Tony Perkins talks with two student directors about the stories they chose to tell, and the creative challenges they faced.

- The goal of the new StoryCorps initiative called "One Small Step" is to bring people from different backgrounds together to share how their personal experiences shape their views on politics and social issues. Chase, who describes himself as liberal, talks with the more conservative Holly about the things that make them similar and different. If you are interested in talking with someone new about how your life experience has shaped your values and opinions, taking the "One Small Step" survey is the way to start.
- And, Mark visits the Mission Garden Project in Tucson to find out what some of the dedicated staff have to say about acts of kindness both large and small that they have witnessed in our community.
