Guest: Erik Spanberg, Senior Staff Writer at the Charlotte Business Journal  Sunday’s matchup between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers features a few storylines that have captured fan attention. Carolina’s Cinderella status for one – and its high-energy young quarterback, known for his on-the-field enthusiasm and his off-the-field fashion.  Denver, of course, has storied quarterback Peyton Manning. He and the Broncos are veterans of this Super Bowl stuff. As a team, they’ve been seven times and won two. Manning has one Super Bowl ring from back when he was with the Indianapolis Colts. The Panthers, on the other hand, have only ever been once – more than a decade ago. And they didn’t win.

Brazil in Crisis

20 MINS

Guest: Paulo Sotero, Director of the Brazil Institute of the Woodrow Wilson International Center  Brazil is at the epicenter of the Zika virus epidemic that is now a global health crisis. Last week, Brazil’s health minister was quoted as saying the country was “badly losing” the battle against Zika.  Paulo Sotero says it’s just the latest in a line of leadership failures the country is suffering. The once rising economic power rising star is facing its second consecutive year of deep recession and a major corruption scandal implicating many of Brazil’s top officials and political parties. Now there’s the Zika virus stretching resources and discouraging people from visiting the country. And let’s not forget later this year, Brazil will host the Summer Olympics.
