  • Many people decry gender inequality today. They say men are better off than women; women receive less pay for the same work; we live in a patriarchy that privileges men. Some scientists tried to quantify the sex inequality—and measured it in 134 nations. You’ll be surprised by what they found.
  • Tensions in Hong Kong between protesters and Chinese authorities continue to worsen. We talk about what’s at stake for Hong Kong and for China.
  • Veganism has become more and more mainstream—a diet that not only excludes meat, but also all animal products. What’s the thinking behind it, and is it healthy?
  • And we conclude by telling you why you should be careful about telling your child he’s smart.
