Another big merger may be in the works. On today’s show, we’ll look at the news that Verizon is in talks with Charter Communications about a possible deal. Next, we’ll explore how students in Bangalore, India, feel about coming to the U.S. after the 2016 election, and then discuss how the day after the Superbowl is notorious for people calling in “sick.”
