Global Sanitation & Transforming The Toilet

Wednesday, 30 June

The United Nations estimates that 4.2 billion people — more than half of the world's population — live without any access to safely managed sanitation. No septic systems. No waste treatment plants. In 'Pipe Dreams,' Chelsea Wald examines the health issues related to sanitation and looks at global efforts to manage human waste, including turning it into fuel and fertilizer.

Also, John Powers reviews the novel 'The Netanyahus,' by Joshua Cohen, and Kevin Whitehead reviews a newly released 1969 concert recording by Sarah Vaughan.
