FROM THIS EPISODE

Governor Jerry Brown is at the Vatican, where the Pope is hosting a conference on climate change. In a new report, James Hansen—the guy who pretty much put climate change on the map—is warning that in less than 50 years, we’ll witness a rise in sea level of at least 10 feet. Coastal cities like New York will be rendered uninhabitable in only a few decades.

And there’s a new satellite in orbit that will help measure climate change. Al Gore is credited with dreaming up that satellite—he literally had a dream about a satellite that would send back pictures of the earth.

Then, novelist Don Winslow’s latest crime epic The Cartel begins with the fictional, government-sanctioned prison break of a cartel kingpin in Mexico.

Finally, the New York Times published details of a 10-year-old deposition in which Bill Cosby admitted to drugging women he wanted to have sex with. In the deposition Cosby casually—almost jokingly—talks about manipulating and drugging women for sex. Yet at the same time he denies being a predator or rapist.

Climate Change, the Vatican and Poverty 19 MIN

Governor Jerry Brown is at the Vatican, where the Pope is hosting a conference on climate change. One warning siren about climate change rose above the rest this week, from prominent climate scientist James Hansen — the guy who pretty much put climate change on the map back in 1988. In a new report, Hansen says that in less than 50 years, we'll witness a rise in sea level of at least 10 feet. Coastal cities like New York will be rendered uninhabitable in only a few decades.

Al Gore's Satellite 6 MIN, 25 SEC

There's a new satellite in orbit that will help measure climate change. Al Gore is credited with dreaming it up — he literally had a dream about a satellite that would send back pictures of the earth. Now we have the first images from what's been dubbed "GoreSat." They're the first photos of the entire planet since American astronauts took the famous "Blue Marble" picture, way back in 1972.

'The Cartel' 14 MIN, 42 SEC

The head of one of the world's deadliest drug cartels sits in a Mexican prison. The government trumpets his capture as a major blow to the drug trade in the country. And then one day, the king of the narcos simply walks out of prison, and back into the drug trade. Yes, we're talking about Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, but this is also how novelist Don Winslow's latest crime epic The Cartel begins: with the fictional, government-sanctioned prison break of a cartel kingpin.

The Psychology of Sexual Assault 8 MIN, 59 SEC

Over the weekend, the New York Times published details of a 10-year-old deposition in which Bill Cosby admitted to drugging women he wanted to have sex with. In the deposition Cosby casually — almost jokingly — talks about manipulating and drugging women for sex. Yet at the same time he denies being a predator or rapist.
