Discovery Communications is reportedly buying Scripps Networks in a $14.6 billion deal. The two parties think this will become must-see television, especially for women. On today’s show, we’ll discuss whether this merger has what it takes to succeed. Next, as we wrap up the month, we’ll talk about the state of the economy with economist Julia Coronado from Macropolicy Perspectives. Plus: A look at what features the next-generation iPhone might have —and how much it might cost.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
