On today’s show, we heard about the curious uptick in American productivity, despite few employees in the workplace. Food prices are also on the rise — the highest since the U.N. started keeping records. Washington Media Group had originally signed a contract to help drum up tourism in Tunisia, but when the country’s recent troubles erupted, the PR group decided to break ties. Meanwhile, European nations are trying to help its workers get out of Libya. Health reporter Gregory Warner investigated the possibility of fighting alcoholism with a pill in Russia. And Kai spoke with photographer J Henry Fair about his striking photographs of nature and the effects of human consumption. Time to consume the songs we played:
