Charlie Brooker was inspired by The Twilight Zone to create his sci-fi series Black Mirror, in which digital technology keeps biting us back in the spookiest ways. And we hear about folklorist Alan Lomax, who brought the blues to a wider audience, but enforced his own kind of musical segregation. And a conversation with the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Tracy K. Smith about her obsession with David Bowie. [Broadcast Date: February 7, 2015]
