We begin with Dr. Gary LaFree, a terrorism expert from the University of MD.  We’ll find out how the latest data on terrorism may inform the world’s response to ISIS, which has claimed responsibility for the deadly November 13th attacks in Paris.

Next, the status of Charm City Schools.  What’s the best way to make them more equitable for all students?  What's new in the conflict surrounding public charter schools?   We'll ask longtime educator and former Baltimore City School Board member Dr. David Stone.

Then, we ask you to help us pick a new theme song.  We’ll give you five samples to choose from, and we’ll talk to the Creative Director of Original Music at Clean Cuts Music about the art of matching music to Maryland Morning.

And our theater critic, J. Wynn Rousuck, has a review of The Secret Garden at Baltimore’s Center Stage.
