"On Second Thought" For Friday, Feb. 22, 2019

This week in Georgia politics was all about the state's voting system. Rep. Barry Fleming (R-Harlem) filed a bill that proposed changing the voting machines from touchscreens to a new ballot-marking device. The bill also suggests changes to absentee ballots and voter registration.

GPB's Stephen Fowler stopped by "On Second Thought" to discuss the voting changes.

 


To see the Battle of Atlanta Cyclorama, you literally have to step inside it. GPB’s Rickey Bevington takes us on a tour of the refurbished Cyclorama, opening this weekend.

In the weeks leading up to the Academy Awards, predictions about who will win are usually running full tilt. This year, the guesses are about the show itself. The Academy that produces the awards has gone back and forth on a host, what categories will be presented during the live broadcast and whether all the best song nominees will perform.

Beth Ward, the TV, film and book editor for ArtsATL, and Kalena Boller, host of the GPB podcast "The Credits," both joined "On Second Thought" to share their predictions on which films will take home a golden statue this weekend. They also shared their ideas on performances they wish had been nominated, like Emily Blunt's role in the horror film, "A Quiet Place."
