Mexico Protests, Cosby Accused of Rape, and An Epic Russian Train Ride

Hosted by  • 

We start with a look south of the border: Why has the disappearance of 43 student-teachers in Mexico galvanized protesters there to such an extreme degree? And is the U.S. paying enough attention to the crisis? Next, in our weekly TV roundup, we look at the rape allegations against comedian Bill Cosby and how they’re impacting his small screen career. Then, NPR’s David Greene discusses his new book, about an epic railroad journey he took across Russia. And finally, a new music streaming service created by YouTube is entering a crowded field with a competitive advantage.

Members of the CETEG (State Coordinator of Teachers of Guerrero teachers' union) clashed with riot police during protests in reprisal for the killing of 43 trainee teachers after the government said corrupt police in league with a local drug gang abducted and apparently murdered the students in the southwestern state of Guerrero in late September.
