(U.S. Edition) We’re looking into who’s getting paid to carry out the Trump administration’s policy of separating children at the U.S. border. One of the principal firms: Southwest Key. Afterwards, we’ll discuss what to expect from today’s Senate testimony with Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who’s likely to get an earful on tariffs, and then we’ll talk about a new “life-extending” coating for avocados. Today’s podcast is sponsored by Carbonite (carbonite.com), Indeed (Indeed.com/marketplace), and Michigan Economic Development Corporation (planetm.michiganbusiness.org). (06/20/2018)
