An award-winning daily show, “PRI's The World” brings one-of-a-kind international stories home to America. "The World's" coverage is provided by a global network of international journalists, including access to 250 BBC correspondents.
The Istanbul attacks earlier this week have, once again, put airport security front and center in people's minds. Can we really design a way to make airports less vulnerable to terrorist attacks? Also, Puerto Rico may have gotten a financial lifeline from Washington this week, but the economic crisis continues. However, there is one area of growth: baseball academies. Plus, we find out, literally, how the sausage is made.
Turkish officials believe ISIS is behind the attack at Istanbul's main airport. We'll have the latest. Plus, a young Turk living in the United States was planning to return home this summer to visit, but now she says she won't. We also hear about a dialect of Tibetan called Mustang. It's slowly dying out in the mountain regions where it is spoken in Nepal, but in a Mustangi diaspora community in New York City, the dialect is trying to live on. Plus, we bring you the improbable story of Marcus Willis at the Wimbledon tennis tournament.
Istanbul, one day after the attacks — we get the latest on the investigation. And, we ask about the role Turkey now plays as a bridge between Europe and the Middle East. Plus, the story of two giant rodents — capybaras — whose escape from a Toronto zoo captured headlines.
The European Parliament was the scene of some harsh words and insults this morning after Nigel Farage, a key force behind Britain's campaign to leave the EU, leveled both barrels at Europe's leaders. We'll find out who exactly Nigel Farage is. Plus, a giant underground field of helium has been found in Tanzania, and people who operate MRI machines are happy. Then we turn to breaking news out of Turkey, where suicide bombers launched a deadly attack on Istanbul's airport. We also hear about another huge victory for tiny Iceland.
Britain's decision to leave the European Union has thrown the country's politics into near chaos. Not only has British Prime Minister David Cameron said he will step down, but now ministers are leaving the opposition Labour Party in droves, as well. Plus: "I want my country back." That's what a British columnist wrote in The New Statesman over the weekend. Laurie Penny tells us about those "Leave" voters in the UK who never felt the positive effects of globalization. And, Bolivia decides it's time to ditch the Gregorian calendar.
In a historic vote, the British have decided that their country should leave the European Union. We're going to devote the entire show to the so-called "Brexit." We'll speak with Brits who supported the "Leave" campaign, and those who voted to stay in the EU. And, will Britain's decision to leave affect its so-called "special relationship" with the United States? Also, does the Brexit victory's populist roots echo the Trump phenomenon in the United States?
