(Originally aired August 20,2018) Guest: Emily Sanford, Student in Psychology and Brain Sciences, Johns Hopkins University People often feel a strong emotional connection to their dog. But does the dog feel the same way? Can a dog sense when its owner is in distress - and will it actually come to the rescue, like Lassie in the old TV show?

Guest: Emmanuel Teitelbaum, Associate Professor of Political Science and International Affairs, George Washington University For more than 20 years, Americans clothing companies have been under pressure to make sure their shoes and shirts and jeans aren’t being sewn in dangerous sweatshops by child laborers in Asia. All the big brands have divisions dedicated to doing things in a socially responsible way. Has any real progress been made? What about those two tragedies that happened in Bangladesh a few years ago where one factory caught fire and another collapsed entirely? Hundreds of workers were killed and logos for some big American brands were found in the rubble. How much progress have we made since that tragedy?
