Part One

Philadelphia tech company
The CEO of that Philadelphia company explains why he's responding to employees disturbed by a Trump presidency — by letting them transfer to the Canadian office. 

Van Gogh sketches
While a Canadian art expert says the pictures in a newly discovered sketchbook are the work of Vincent Van Gogh, the Van Gogh Museum says she's drawing the wrong conclusions. 

Springsteen biker 
As he's done more than once before, Dan Barkalow pulled over to help a guy whose bike had broken down — and discovered that the guy was Bruce Springsteen.

Part Two

Indianapolis factory worker
Despite Donald Trump's promises, an Indianapolis factory is headed to Mexico — which will leave our guest unemployed and uncertain about his vote and his future. 

Barney Frank
The President-elect says he wants to dismantle the Dodd-Frank Act, with its tough regulations on banks — but former Congressman Barney Frank takes apart the case for taking it apart. 

Part Three

Argentinian beaver cull
Argentina has announced plans to kill a hundred thousand Canadian beavers in its far southern province of Tierra del Fuego.

Facebook fake news
Made-up headlines like that were all over Facebook during the campaign — and they may have had a very real impact. 

California death penalty
Rather than repeal the death penalty, California has voted to expedite the appeals process. No one's been executed there in 10 years, but it has far more inmates on death row than any other state.
