As US and Cuba relations thaw, what can we expect to change?

latinjazzLast week, Cuba was officially taken off the U.S.’s state sponsors of terrorism list, paving the way for the re-establishment of diplomatic ties between Washington and Havana. While the move is controversial, what does it actually change? Walter Turner is here to let us know if we can start booking flights to Havana this summer or if the move is largely symbolic. Also, working moms can take a sigh of relief. A new report published by the Harvard Business School finds that children actually benefit from having working moms.
Guests:

Mayra Ruiz, researcher at the Harvard Business School

John Santos,  Classic Latin Jazz Musician

Walter Turner, board president of Global Exchange and host of Africa Today
