It's a special edition of The World, coming to you not from Boston, but Austin. We're broadcasting live from member station KUT in Austin, Texas, where the annual South By Southwest festival. The World's host, Marco Werman, is there to get a handle on a new breed of global activists. They're tech-savvy and not afraid to use all manner of online tools to push for change. In our hour today, we'll hear their voices. Plus, we'll hear a story about online activist movements and how ISIS brands itself and attracts young people to its cause. And don't worry: We'll also get to hear plenty of music from artists appearing at SXSW.
