Studio 360 Episode 1136, Stewart Copeland & Zee Avi Stewart Copeland (Danny Clinch)

Studio 360 revisits childhood. Before he was the drummer for The Police, Stewart Copeland was a boy in Beirut with a CIA spy for a dad. He dishes about Sting in a new memoir.

And on the North Slope of Alaska, Inuit filmmaker Andrew Okpeha MacLean explains how bad TV got him to rethink native culture.
