U.S. Financial Warfare (1:03)  Guest: Juan Zarate, Former Assistant Treasury Secretary and Deputy National Security Adviser  Some of the most powerful weapons the United States has to fight terrorists and keep rogue regimes in line comes not from the Department of Defense, but from the US Treasury Department. Bad guys need money to do bad things. So, in the days after 9/11, the United States unleashed a batter of tactics aimed at tracking Al Qaeda’s financial footprints and freezing it out of the financial system. These same weapons are now being used on ISIS. They were also key in convincing Iran to dismantle its nuclear program.  Man’s Best Friend (19:22) Guest: Robert Losey, PhD, Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Alberta, Research Associate at the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institution  Do you have a dog? Do you treat it like a member of the family? Let it sit at the table or sleep on the bed? Recent excavation of cemeteries in Siberia that date back 7,000 and 8,000 years finds this closeness between man and his furry best friend is an ancient one. Anthropologist Robert Losey has unearthed the remains of dogs closely resembling modern Siberian Huskies buried for their own sake – not just as companions to their owners in the afterlife.  From the Vaults: Women’s Suffrage (32:17) Guest: Connie Lamb, Senior Librarian in the Harold B. Lee Library at BYU  In a campaign year that features Hillary Clinton so prominently, we’d like to explore for a moment early political milestones for women, when they first had to fight for the right to vote, not to mention hold office.  Archive.org: Utah woman's sufferage song book
