This hour: bridging West Africa’s communication gap. We hear how one Connecticut-based nonprofit is bringing community radio to Senegalese villages. It's something host Lucy Nalpathanchil reported on during her visit to the country late last month.
But first: We get the latest on a bill permitting the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes to erect a third casino in Connecticut.
We also travel to South Africa where researchers have discovered some very, very old bones -- the remains of our relative, Homo naledi.
