Episode Description 
Broadcasting live from the Aspen Ideas Festival, today's show is all about one of the biggest -- and least understood -- problems facing the U.S. economy today: risk. Kai Ryssdal talks to filmmaker, explorer, mountaineer and founder of GlacierWorks, David Breashears, about the risks he's taken in his career and life. Kai also speaks with fashion designer Tory Burch about entrepreneurship during this time in the economy. And we have the weekly wrap with New York bureau chief Heidi Moore and CNBC's John Carney.
