Bowe Bergdahl Mystery, Today’s Peace Corps, Brain Mapping

Hosted by  • 

First up, we look at the behind-the-scenes maneuvering that led to a last-minute peace deal in Afghanistan over the weekend. Then, what’s going on with Bowe Bergdahl, the Army Sergeant captured by the Taliban in 2009 and freed May 31st? He’s back on active duty but refusing to speak to his parents. Next, we take a look at how architects are using drones to design buildings here in L.A. Then: the Peace Corps has the lowest number of volunteers in a decade. Why, and what does it say about how our culture has changed? Finally, we look at a race between the U.S. and England to map the human brain.
