Freezing your body

Would you want to be cryogenically preserved after death?

Would you want to be cryogenically preserved after death? After a 14 year girl won a legal battle to have her body preserved shortly before she died, we hear about how cryogenics works and the ethics around it. We'll hear from others signing up to be preserved after death and the companies providing the service.

Plus, after the Kenyan government extended the closure of the Dadaab refugee camp by six months we'll bring you an interview with a female blogger there

And we'll hear from a group of Muslim Americans - some who voted for Trump, others who voted for Clinton - about what they want for the future of their country.
