Tuesday, January 27, 2015 5:05pmToday marks the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. World leaders, religious figures and survivors are marking the occasion at a solemn ceremony outside the gates of the former Nazi concentration camp. We'll hear the stories of two survivors. Also, a Russian spy is arrested in New York City, and the best chocolate chip cookie in the world is apparently made by Mexican-Americans in Brooklyn.
Monday, January 26, 2015 5:05pmWhat's going on in Greece? A left-wing anti-austerity party has come to power, and that could mean big changes for both the Greek economy and Europe at large. We also remember Egyptian-born Greek pop singer Demis Roussos, while Saudi and Yemeni students on US campuses talk to us about big changes back home. And an underwater photographer tells us the story of his explosive encounter with a sperm whale.
Friday, January 23, 2015 4:43pmWe're following two big global stories today: the transition in Saudi Arabia and the political upheaval in next-door Yemen. There are big US security interests at stake in both places. Plus, SkyMall declares bankruptcy and we look at Brooklyn's Dancehall scene.
Thursday, January 22, 2015 6:47pmWe continue our look at Cuba immigration policy and meet recently arrived Cubans who tell us about their first days in America. Also, Saudi Arabia may be the only country where women can't drive, but there are other places where it's forbidden, including here in the US. We heard from one woman who learned to drive after leaving a Hasidic community in New York. Plus, a café where you can spend time with cats.
Wednesday, January 21, 2015 4:56pmA high-level US delegation is in Cuba for talks. At the same time, a Russian spy ship is docked in a Havana harbor. Following President Barack Obama's State of the Union address last night, we try to figure out what the next steps will be in the US-Cuba relationship, and where Russia fits in the equation. Also, we look at America's special immigration policy toward Cuba; it's known as wet-foot/dry-foot. A Miami lifeguard and a Cuban American exile help explain it to us. And, Translators without Borders is working to translate essential medical information into as many local African languages as possible.
