The Liquor Control Board, the Iranian hikers and the Federal ReserveListen
Today on Radio Times, we’ll catch up on three stories in the news we’ve been following. We’ll start off talking to Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reporter BRAD BUMSTEAD about the push to privatize Pennsylvania’s liquor stores. Then, we turn to HALEH ESFANDIARI of the Woodrow Wilson Center for reaction to the release of American hikers Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer after two years in an Iranian prison. And finally, we turn to New York Times business editor JEFF SOMMER for an explanation of yesterday’s announcement from the Federal Reserve regarding its efforts to stimulate the economy by lowering interest rates.
