Go inside the #brockturner, Stanford University, rape case, which has sparked a much-needed national discussion on campus sexual assaults. Palo Alto Weekly has done a great job. See latest stories, including a letter from a disgruntled juror angry over Brock's 6-month jail sentence. Convicted of 3 felony assault charges, star athlete Brock could've gotten 14 years.

I grew up on lightning storms, on the far edge of North America. I love the sound of thunder--and dreamed of seeing lightning, really seeing it. Thanks to the magic of NPR, we can.
