"Palestine Now": Israel and the Palestinian people have been locked in a cycle of violence for generations. But now, young people in the West Bank are growing so disillusioned with the status quo that they're turning their backs on their own government. Ahmed Shihab-Eldin reports from Bethlehem, Hebron, Ramallah and East Jerusalem to explore what life is like for young Palestinians today.

"Viva Cuba Libre": On March 21, President Obama became the first sitting American president to visit Cuba in 88 years. His trip is part of a campaign to prove that engagement with longtime adversaries is effective in renewing dialogue and promoting change. Shane Smith visits the 2015 Summit of the Americas to see the political thawing of relationships between Cuba and the United States, and then travels to Havana, Cuba to speak to Cubans about how music and culture are helping bridge the divide between two former enemies.
