This Saturday, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from The Newseum in Washington D.C. The Newseum is more than just a museum — it is an interactive experience with exhibits all focused on the five freedoms of the First Amendment. The exhibits include everything from virtual reality exhibits to films to artifacts. “The Berlin Wall Gallery” includes parts of the actual Berlin Wall along with virtual reality, allowing patrons to participate in activities from tearing down the wall to visiting a memorial to commemorate fallen journalists who fought for the truth. Carrie Christoffersen, Curator of the temporary “Louder Than Words” exhibit, explains how this exhibit utilizes classic rock music icons and artifacts to reflect some of history’s most significant moments in music in context of the five freedoms of the first amendment. Veteran journalist and Correspondent for CBS News Bill Plante joins the show to share his insight on journalism throughout some of the most important times in history. Patty Rhule, Director of Exhibit Development at the Museum, stops by to share why the education gained through the Newseum is important more now than ever. There is all of this and more when the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from The Newseum in Washington D.C.
