Bob talks with historian and business scholar Niall Ferguson. Ferguson is author of the upcoming book The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World. Then, Bob remembers journalist Tom Gish, who died this past weekend at the age of 82. Gish, along with his wife Pat, published the Mountain Eagle of Whitesburg, KY. Gish tirelessly investigated the environmental practices of the coal industry, overcoming threats of violence and the firebombing of their newspaper offices. We'll hear an excerpt from Bob's 2004 interview with Tom and Pat Gish.
