How a catfish posing as an Australian actor built a web of lies to stalk and torment her victims. Also on DTS, it's only week one of the election who knew that electric vehicles would feature so much in the campaign debate? So where are we at with electric cars?

What the Constitution Means to the Playwright Heidi Schreck
Few Americans dispute the centrality of the Constitution as a statement of our countryâ€™s goals; it is as though holy. But what the Constitution actually means to any two people may differ widely, and those differences are dramatized in a new play, on Broadway, called â€œWhat the Constitution Means to Me.â€ Itâ€™s essentially a one-person show written and performed by Heidi Schreck (profiled in The New Yorker by Michael Schulman), and itâ€™s her first play to reach Broadway. The performer reflects on her personal history as a high-school debate champion, when she was rewarded for upholding an officially sanctioned view of American politics that she has come to realize is a distortion. Both the play and Schreckâ€™s performance have been nominated for Tony Awards; itâ€™s a hit, and itâ€™s a cultural flashpoint in an era when the phrase â€œconstitutional crisisâ€ is invoked almost weekly. Dorothy Wickenden spoke with Heidi Schreck.Â Plus, SoundCloud rapâ€”once a marginal, willfully weird genre for amateursâ€”has lately created some of the biggest hits in hip-hop.
