Preventative Measures: Maternal Health, Executive Privilege, Bowerbird Project
There’s a mom crisis in the US. A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that about 700 women die every year in the US during pregnancy or after childbirth. Those numbers are up about 75% from the year 2000, worse than other high-income countries, and black and Native American women are most affected. We'll explain. Then: President Trump is playing the “executive privilege” card against releasing the unredacted Mueller report...and all of the underlying material the team used to write it. Also on today’s episode: how some states are trying to help high schoolers understand money, money, money, money ... and why “zero waste” is flying high.
