rape-and-sexual-assaultA tenth woman has gone public about Donald Trump sexually assaulting her, even as the GOP Presidential nominee continues to deny the crimes he’s being accused of. We’ll speak with activist and rape survivor Jane Piper about the issues of rape and sexual assault in this election campaign. And, Theo Padnos, an American journalist was kidnapped and held in captivity by Al Qaeda in Syria for 22 months, and lived to tell his story. We’ll speak with Padnos, and David Schisgall, the director of the new documentary, Theo Who Lived. Plus, writer Kimball Taylor joins us to discuss the US-Mexico border and how thousands of migrants biked their way across. His new book is called The Coyote’s Bicycle: The Untold Story of 7000 Bicycles and a Borderland Empire.
