This week, we'll go to Pakistan to speak with climate journalist Zulfiqar Kunbhar about how the South Asian nation is handling the unprecedented and deadly flooding that has already claimed a thousand lives and displaced tens of millions. Then, Douglas Rushkoff, a media and technology expert will join me to discuss his new book, Survival of the Richest: Escape Fantasies of the Tech Billionaires. And finally, we'll honor the late, great Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed, who died last week at age 81. I spoke with her in 2009 about the other book she's known for, Bright-sided: How Positive Thinking Is Undermining America and we'll re-air that interview in her memory.
