Dinner presentation on “What Were You Thinking: Latest global solutions tackling extremism and cyber-hacking.” NPR correspondent Dina Temple-Raston has just completed the first season of a podcast that looks at the adolescent decision making process. Two of the episodes of “What Were You Thinking?” look at radicalization and cyber-hacking.
