  • What’s behind America’s rising maternal mortality rate
    The U.S. has the highest rate of mothers dying during pregnancy, childbirth and postpartum of any developed country -- 26 women for every 100,000 live births. Last week, NPR and ProPublica published a joint investigation into the reasons why mothers are dying. ProPublica reporter Nina Martin joins Hari Sreenivasan from Oakland, California, to discuss what the investigation found.

Now the dean of the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver, Hill joins Hari Sreenivasan to discuss the latest.
