It's spring picks week on Word of Mouth. The crew has scoured the airwaves and handpicked stories and interviews that will entertain, delight, and maybe even challenge you. Up first, a reporter takes an unflinching look at an uncomfortable topic: what is whiteness?  

Then, a candid and compelling conversation with an ex-con who wants to have his swastika tattoo covered up.

Finally we head to The Magic Castle—a private club for magicians in Los Angeles—to find out what distinguishes a delightful trick from a dirty con.

Jimmy Gutierrez's Pick

Scene On Radio - "Seeing White"

Emily Hsiao -  "Leaving a Mark"

Molly Donahue's Pick

Criminal - "The Shell Game"
