Listen to the full episode24:15

Part One

VIA verdict
 Wiretaps revealed that two men were plotting an attack on a passenger train bound for Toronto -- and those wiretaps helped convince a jury to find both men guilty on terrorism charges. 

India cheating
In India, students' neighbours, friends and family showed up in droves, and climbed walls to give those students answers to their exams.

Sook-Yin's processed cheese
Our ongoing coverage of processed cheese continues with a harrowing conversation with the CBC's Sook-Yin Lee -- about the slice that's been stuck to her window for 18 months. 

Part Two

Srebenica arrests
After 20 years, Serbia will put people on trial for their involvement in the 1995 massacre at Srebrenica. 

"Getting Naked" art exhibit
Despite that Canadians tend to rebuff the art of the buff, one Ontario gallery has uncovered dozens of long-unseen pieces for an exhibition devoted to the nude.  

Part Three

Matthew Wuest obit
Halifax sportswriter Matthew Wuest didn't just help readers keep score -- he also created a tool that became invaluable to NHL owners and execs.  

Yemen attack
Coordinated suicide bombings at mosques in Yemen killed more than a hundred people today. We'll go to Sanaa for more.

Pacific blob
When research meterologist Nick Bond tells you there's a "warm blob" moving down the Pacific Coast, you'll either laugh or shudder. The second response is the right one.
