The number of people signing up for unemployment benefits rose 14% – that’s 419,000 new applications – in the past week. Diane Swonk drops in to discuss how this figure can actually spotlight issues within systems at the state and local level. We also report on the FTC tackling consumers’ rights to repair their own equipment. Then, we have the second part of our talk with “Summer of Soul” producers Robert Fyvolent and Joseph Patel about their documentary chronicling the Harlem Cultural Festival of 1969.
