A year after the closing of Boston Store and Younkers retail locations, we talk about whether they’re missed. And we discuss some of the top stories making news in Washington, including what the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates have been up to at the Iowa State Fair.

Featured in this Show

  • The First Anniversary Of Younkers, Boston Store Closing

    In August 2018, Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. — the parent company of the Boston Store and Younkers — went bankrupt. We talk to a business reporter about the loss of those stores and how customers have responded to their absence.

  • This Week In Washington – August 14, 2019

    Democratic candidates for president are shaking hands and eating corn dogs this week at the Iowa State Fair. We hear how they’re trying to stand out. We also look at more calls for the Senate to take up gun control legislation, and reactions to the death of accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein.
