The Politics of Ebola Quarantines and Zombies v The World Series

Hosted by

We start with a look at the politics and legalities of quarantining health workers who’ve treated Ebola patients, on the heels of nurse Kaci Hickox speaking out against her forced isolation in New Jersey over the weekend. Then, an update from the Hawaii town of Pahoa, which is threatened by lava. In our weekly TV roundup, we discuss how the World Series is stacking up against football and The Walking Dead. Next, a neuroscientist and author talks about how we can shield our brains from the toll of being constantly bombarded with new information in this digital age. And finally, big retailers like CVS and Rite-Aid are rejecting Apple’s new mobile payment app -- what’s in store for consumers?
