Broadcasting live from New York City, Kai Ryssdal and New York bureau chief Heidi Moore visit three scenes that have played major roles in the post-financial-crisis era: the offices of Lehman Brothers and of Morgan Stanley, and Zuccotti Park, the former home of Occupy Wall Street. Kai also speaks to actress and playwright Anna Deavere Smith about her work and about telling the stories of the big, complicated social issues of our time, and David Gura takes a look at pension reform -- who it hurts and who it benefits.
