Vox Pop : Open Forum on 7/22/14 : What To Do About Putin?

The world has been watching Russia and Ukraine since last week's downing of a Malaysia Airlines jet that killed 298 civilians. Even as investigators comb the contested site, Russian President Vladimir Putin has sought to blame Kiev for breaking a cease-fire with pro-Russian separatists. What should the U.S. do about this global hotspot? And is Putin soul-less, as Vice President Biden reportedly told the Russian leader, or just cynical?

Vox Pop : Open Forum on 7/15/14 : Public Breastfeeding

There’s a headline about it every day. A mother is asked to stop nursing her child in public. It is legal in 46 out of 50 states to breastfeed in public, and experts say breastfeeding is best for an infant. Yet some still find public nursing to be indecent or offensive, and speak out against it. Trish MacEnroe of Baby-Friendly USA joins us in the studio for a discussion of the issues surrounding public breastfeeding.
