Episode Description 
The video camera maker GoPro has its IPO Thursday, and it’s the largest IPO by a consumer electronics firm in decades. GoPro is popular among the skateboarder and snowboarder set, but what are its growth opportunities? We look at whether it has the promise to be a content provider, and how its cameras might fit in to the Internet of Things. Plus, a new report on housing highlights the problems that Millennials face in getting into the housing market, and why it’s important to the economy that they do get in. Also, billions around the globe are riveted to the action in Brazil. And here in the U.S, professional soccer is gaining in popularity. Nowhere is that more evident than in Sacramento, California, where a brand new team has rocketed out of the gate. Then after, we talk to Univision Anchor Enrique Acevedo about a new report released by Columbia University that highlights the underrepresentation of Latinos in the U.S. media.
