Full Episode Audio

1. A stunning reversal this week from the American intelligence community. Now they say Iran stopped pursuing nuclear weapons four years ago. Is this Good News, Bad News, or No News?

2. This week, President Bush fought the foreclosure crisis with a five-year freeze on adjustable mortgage rates. So instead of bumping up, they'll remain at the "teaser rate." It's called the "teaser freezer" -- is it Good News, Bad News, or No News?

3. New research shows that young chimpanzees consistently outperform adult humans in a memory test; the chimps have a kind of photographic memory. The Japanese researcher speculates that humans used to have it too, but we gave it up when we developed language. Does that strike you as Good News, Bad News or No News?
