Will President Obama’s new Title IX guidelines level the playing field for aspiring female athletes and academics? Join us on Capital Thinking Radio this week as we talk to three-time Olympic gold medalist Nancy Hogshead-Makar; Kathryn Olson, CEO of the Women’s Sports Foundation; and public policy guru Sarah Vilms. Volcanic ash from Iceland has cost airlines more than $1.7 billion so far. Steve Brown, vice president of the National Business Aviation Association, and aviation expert Gregory Walden discuss how this has impacted the industry. Next we talk to Kirsten Wegner of Patton Boggs about efforts on Capital Hill to overhaul financial regulations and the politics behind the legislation now under consideration.
