World Cup Protests, Four Decades of Film and Scary Food News

Hosted by  • 

Who are the people behind ISIS, the jihadist group that wants to carve out an Islamic state in Iraq and Syria? We find out from a former British intelligence and UN official. The World Cup kicks off today in Sao Paulo, but protests are putting a damper on the celebration in Brazil’s biggest city. We check in on the scene on the ground. Next, we turn to the national political landscape and look at why pollsters weren’t able to predict House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s stunning defeat in Virginia’s seventh district this week. Ken Turan, film critic for the Los Angeles Times and NPR’s Morning Edition, discusses his new book, Not to Be Missed: Fifty-Four Favorites from a Lifetime of Film. Finally, we hear from a researcher who made a frightening discovery: a highly-antibiotic-resistant bacteria found in a frozen squid for sale in a Canadian grocery store.
