    And, how Boomers are making inflation worse.

    Guests: Axios' Dave Lawler, Neil Irwin, and Oriana González.

    Protests and upsets at the World Cup

    Protests and upsets at the World Cup

    The United States will either win the World Cup game against Iran or go home on Tuesday afternoon. The stakes are high and so are tensions. Iran state media has called for the U.S. to be kicked out of the World Cup, after the U.S. changed the Iranian flag on its social media platforms to show support for protesters there. And the Iranian soccer team may be facing its own repercussions back home for its support of protests.

    Plus, the world’s largest active volcano is erupting.

    And, President Biden looks to Congress to avert a rail strike.

    Guests: Axios' Jeff Tracy and Hawaii Public Radio’s Jason Ubay.

    A major rail strike is back on the table

    A major rail strike is back on the table

    A U.S. rail strike could hit as soon as December, and just about every part of the economy would feel it. An influential railroad worker union this week rejected a deal that President Biden had brokered back in September, making a strike once again look possible. And this time, it comes just as the holidays are upon us.

    And, student loan borrowers get another extension.

    Plus, reframing tomorrow as Thankstaking.

    Guests: Axios' Emily Peck and Russell Contreras.
