  • 8808 - When President Trump almost pushed gun control

    At the end of a long week, it’s Friday. We talk about what changed then-President Donald Trump’s mind following his call for gun control after a shooter killed 23 people at an El Paso, Texas, Walmart. Plus, baseball teams use their social media platforms to speak out about gun violence. Before we go, our hosts ponder sharks, farmyard pets and more in a game of This or That.

    Here’s everything we talked about today:

    Update on a possible outburst of meteors” from Sky & Telescope “After El Paso shooting, Trump pushed again on gun control. His aides talked him out of it.” from The New York Times “The Night the Yankees and Rays Didn’t Stick to Sports” from The Wall Street Journal “Undersea ‘sharkcano’ eruption captured in spectacular satellite images” from Live Science

  • 8807 - Americans are spending more than they’re making

    We got a lot of data today about how people are spending money in this country. The Federal Reserve’s preferred inflation measure slowed in April and spending rose. But as consumers stretch their dollars, they’re changing brands and dipping into savings. Today, we’ll examine how inflation is shaping the shopping experience. We’ll also look at trade complications in a post-Brexit Europe and the rising costs of hurricane season.

  • 8806 - Inflation slowed down just a bit in April. It’s still high.

    Has inflation possibly started to peak? The Federal Reserve’s preferred inflation gauge slowed to a 0.2% increase last month, which is far less than in March. Helping us to decipher the meaning and discuss more markets-wise is Christopher Low of FHN Financial. The Memorial Day weekend traditionally kicks off the summer driving season, and high gas prices are not expected to slow drivers. We look into how a part of Biden’s infrastructure plan targets the replacement of lead pipes, which entered the national spotlight during the Flint, Michigan water crisis.

  • 8805 - Let’s analyze Biden’s executive order on policing

    President Biden signed an executive order addressing policing on Wednesday, the two-year anniversary of the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police. To help us dive into what the order means, we spoke with Marc Morial, president and CEO of the National Urban League, who said the order is a step in the right direction but that police reform legislation is still needed. In the wake of the tragic school shooting in Texas, we look into how some companies have dotted-line connections to the firearms industry, which could surprise some investors.

  • 8804 - The implications of debt default for Russia

    From the BBC World Service: We look at the likelihood of Russia defaulting on billions of dollars of debt to foreign investors, and what the ramifications could be for Moscow if it’s not able to pay. Poland’s parliament has voted to scrap a contentious disciplinary body for judges which the European Union had said was undermining judicial independence, paving the way for the EU to release billions of dollars in COVID-19 recovery funding due to Warsaw. And we look at the allure of investing in cryptocurrencies for young people in Singapore, and what some of the potential risks involved are.
