THE LOST KING
King John II of France is missing from the pages of history. There are no movies, no books, hardly a Wikipedia page. But, after Jenks dug in to the mystery of this seemingly forgotten king, a whole medieval world came to life. As it turns out, John II, perhaps better known as John the Good, sailed to England to turn himself in as a prisoner of war, abandoning his stunned French subjects to fend for themselves through the Dark Ages. Is he the worst king in history? Or, has he been unfairly lost to the annals of time? What Really Happened? Guests: David Green (author/historian), Michael Jones (author/historian), Michael Pye (author/historian), Neil Murphy (author/historian), and Peter Hoskins (author/historian)

Who Killed Dr. Martin Luther King?
Everyone loves a good conspiracy. James Earl Ray initially confessed to killing Dr. Martin Luther King on April 4th, 1968, as he stood on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel, but he would later recount his confession and did so until his death in 1998. Loyd Jowers owned and operated a tavern below the rooming house where James Earl Ray was staying, and he later claimed to have participated in a plot to assassinate Dr. King. Was he just a nutty old man? Could it possibly have been a mafia hit, or a murder carried out by our own government? We cover it all in this episode of The Next Best Thing!

The Soul Force
In the final episode of this season, we trace the path of the revolutionary idea that spread across the globe to become the dominant form of political resistance today. We also examine the role that personal psychology, and even mental illness, play in what Gandhi, King and others recognized as the secret ingredient of any nonviolent approach: empathy.
