This week we draw some sociological insights from talks to merge the men's and women's tennis tours. And I talk with Professor Sarah Brayne, of the University of Texas, about her forthcoming paper titled “Technologies of Crime Prediction: The Reception of Algorithms in Policing and Criminal Courts.” The paper is to be published in the journal Social Problems, and is co-authored by Angele Christin.

Segment 1 -- Sarah Brayne on "Technologies of Crime Prediction: The Reception of Algorithms in Policing and Criminal Courts."

Segment 2 --  Sociological insights on Roger Federer and others' efforts to unify the men's and women's tennis tours.
