The Economics of Ebola and the Untold Story of Trapped Chilean Miners

Hosted by

We start with a look at the economic cost of the Ebola crisis: It’s already in the millions in the U.S., which pales in comparison to the possible $30 billion price tag in West Africa. Then, we hear from the owner of a surf retreat in Liberia who’s been affected by the disappearance of tourism. Next, 10,000 pages of newly released, previously confidential documents from the Clinton administration shed new light on the history of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” among other things. Then we hear from writer and LA Times reporter Hector Tobar, whose new book details the previously untold story of 33 Chilean miners who were trapped underground for 69 days. Finally, in our weekly TV roundup we discuss the season five premiere of “The Walking Dead” and more.
