Amanpour: Peggy Orenstein, Father Greg Boyle and Dan Buettner
Peggy Orenstein, author of "Boys & Sex", joins Christiane Amanpour to discuss why she's turning her attention from the sexual experiences and education of young girls to boys.

Father Greg Boyle reflects on starting up Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles; the largest rehabilitation program in the world for active gang members. He speaks passionately about breaking the cycles of abuse and violence that grips these gang members, through a process of tenderness, learning and spirituality. Then - our Hari Sreenivasan sat down with Dan Buettner, founder of the Blue Zones Project and National Geographic fellow to talk about his well-being improvement initiative launched in over 40 cities across the United States.

Prystaiko discusses the international crises that Ukraine has been inadvertently dragged into; from the impeachment of Donald Trump to the Ukrainian airliner shot down in Iran. Andrew Forrest, founder and chairman of Fortescue Metals, talks about the devastating wildfires in his home Australia. Forrest donated $48 million in aid - but as a mining magnate he has a complicated history with the contributing factors to climate change and by extension these very fires he is helping to put out.

As jury selection begins, Kantor reveals why only 2 women out of 80+ who accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct are going to trial. Gretchen Carlson, the former Fox News anchor, talks about what it feels like to be constrained by an NDA. In 2016 she filed a lawsuit against then Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes for sexual harassment; a case that was settled for $20 million, but with the agreement of her silence. Now in the light of the #MeToo era she says she wishes she had fought harder. Oren Falkowitz, CEO & co-founder of "Area 1 Security," lays out the latest cybersecurity threat; a hack on gas company Burisma.

Then our Michel Martin sits down with Lee McIntyre, author of "Post-Truth," to reflect on how to live and navigate in this world of lies and misinformation.

Our Hari Sreenivasan sits down with Chris Hughes, co-founder of Facebook, to talk about his concerns that the tech giant is too powerful and may be a potential risk to liberal democracy.
