Episode Description 
The Supreme Court made their decision on Arizona's immigration law. Much of the bill was struck down, but are business owners and undocumented immigrants still wary?

Kai Ryssdal talks to author John Lanchester, whose new book, Capital, is about the housing bubble in England. And in the latest installment of Conversations from the Corner Office, Foursquare co-founder and CEO Dennis Crowley talks about social media and technology in culture today.
