Coming up on today's show:

  • Yesterday, California Treasurer John Chiang announced that the state would suspend all business with Wells Fargo for at least a year, citing the bank's "venal abuse of its customers." Chiang joins The Takeaway today to discuss his decision, and the future of Wells Fargo. 
  • On October 1st, a new law will go into effect in North Carolina that blocks the public from obtaining police body camera or dashboard camera footage. The governor signed the legislation two months ago, well before the shooting of Keith Lamont Scott. Nancy G. La Vigne, director of the Justice Policy Center at The Urban Institute, has the details. 
  • This week marked the first-ever Arctic Science Ministerial. Convened by President Obama at the White House, a total of 25 Arctic and non-Arctic countries were in attendance to discuss science priorities and advancements in Arctic research. Evon Peter, an Alaskan Native leader and vice chancellor for rural, community, and native education at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, was at the meeting and shares what he learned. 
  • New research shows that obese bias from doctors and healthcare professionals is a persistent issue. Dr. Katherine Saunders, an obesity expert at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian, and Patty Nece, a member of the Obesity Action Coalition's Weight Bias Committee, join The Takeaway to discuss how some are working to overcome these stigmas.
