President Obama plans to announce a new large-scale response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa today. We discuss the details and talk to a healthcare worker fighting the epidemic in Liberia. We also hear about the knock-down, drag-out fight that continues in the nation’s capital over Frank Gehry’s Eisenhower memorial plans for the National Mall. Plus, we take a trip down the country’s most endangered river, the San Joaquin, from the Sierra Nevadas to the San Francisco Bay. And we learn about a 770-pound colossal squid that scientists just dissected in New Zealand.
