Media Roundtable: The European Union's Stimulus Plan & Sexual Harassment In The US Coast Guard

Jul 24, 2020

On this edition of Your Call’s Media Roundtable, we'll get an update on the COVID pandemic in Italy and the $860B recovery fund to help the 27-member EU bloc tackle their economic crisis.

We'll also discuss a McClatchy investigation about sexual assault and harassment in the US Coast Guard. In a survey published last July, almost half of female cadets at the Coast Guard Academy reported sexual harassment. How is the Coast Guard responding? 

Guests:

Eric Reguly, European bureau chief for The Globe and Mail

Kevin Hall, chief economics correspondent and senior investigator at McClatchy Newspapers
