We heard about how the art and science of selling food can be redirected to fight obesity, and about the well-funded Mexican drug operations along the Southwest U.S. border. And Kai spoke with former GM vice chairman Bob Lutz about the company and his new book, Car Guys vs. Bean Counters: The Battle for the Soul of American Business. Here are the songs we played:
