We’ll look into Wall Street’s love affair with risk, how that helped lead to the economic crisis, and what can be done to keep the same thing from happening again. Then, director Richard Linklater talks about his latest film, “Me and Orson Welles.” Also, Viggo Mortensen discusses the challenges of starring in the film adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s “The Road.” Plus, we look into why many young people are abandoning the small towns they grew up in for big cities, and how that’s effecting rural America.
