Propaganda Wars, iPhone Hysteria and Ranking College Rankings

Hosted by

Iraq has a new prime minister. We take a look at what the leadership change mean for U.S. involvement in Iraq and Syria, and we discuss a new propaganda video released by the US to combat ISIS recruitment. Next, we look at Apple’s unveiling of two new iPhone models today and examine the media hysteria that surrounds every new apple product. Turning to education, a new book claims that much of our common wisdom about the best ways to study and learn are flat-out wrong. And finally, how can we make sense of the multitude of lists that come out this time of year, ranking American colleges?
