PRI's The World: 01/23/2015 We're following two big global stories today: the transition in Saudi Arabia and the political upheaval in next-door Yemen. There are big US security interests at stake in both places. Plus, SkyMall declares bankruptcy and we look at Brooklyn's Dancehall scene.
PRI's The World: 01/22/2015 We continue our look at Cuba immigration policy and meet recently arrived Cubans who tell us about their first days in America. Also, Saudi Arabia may be the only country where women can't drive, but there are other places where it's forbidden, including here in the US. We heard from one woman who learned to drive after leaving a Hasidic community in New York. Plus, a café where you can spend time with cats.
PRI's The World: 01/21/2015 A high-level US delegation is in Cuba for talks. At the same time, a Russian spy ship is docked in a Havana harbor. Following President Barack Obama's State of the Union address last night, we try to figure out what the next steps will be in the US-Cuba relationship, and where Russia fits in the equation. Also, we look at America's special immigration policy toward Cuba; it's known as wet-foot/dry-foot. A Miami lifeguard and a Cuban American exile help explain it to us. And, Translators without Borders is working to translate essential medical information into as many local African languages as possible.
