The Quiet Dignity of Bears

On the day when the Internet turns to llamas, we keep our focus on the important thing, the dangerous thing: bears. Today on The Gist, the latest bear news with wildlife biologist Rae Wynn-Grant from Columbia University. Plus, Slate’s Will Oremus answers exactly one question about net neutrality. We’ll hear your questions, and learn about what the color of a bear’s fur has to do with its species. Send us your questions for a future segment using #bearnews. For the Spiel, Mike throws barbs at Iran. Today’s sponsor: The new ABC series “American Crime."
