Judging Art

This week: how do we decide what art is worth? And why? We head down to the Rouge Lounge slam night in Edmonton to hear how the crowd judges live spoken word poetry, and find out why Dan Zimmerman developed the Likeblockr app that stops you from seeing likes and comments on Instagram. Then urban fantasy novelist Daniel José Older tells us how prejudices about the race of writers and characters shape what books get published.
