May 21, 2018: Hour 2

The U.S. Supreme court, by a 5-4 vote margin, has ruled for the first time that workers may not band together to challenge violations of federal labor laws. We look at what this means for employers and employees. Also, health workers in the Democratic Republic of Congo began vaccinating people Monday against an outbreak of Ebola that's killed at least 26 people. This is the first time a vaccine will be used to control an Ebola outbreak. Plus, a mountain biker has died and a second person was seriously injured after a cougar attacked them on a remote trail in Washington state. And, we chat with Matt Quinn of the indie folk group Mt. Joy, which found unexpected success when its song "Astrovan" took off on Spotify. It now has almost 7 million streams.
