The full broadcast of Boston Public Radio from Wednesday, May 16th, 2018. Thanks to a new SEC requirement, publicly-traded companies have to disclose how their CEOs are paid compared to their employees. Does this give consumers a reason to do business at places where the distribution of wealth is more fair? We opened up the lines and got your take. Jared Bowen, WGBH arts editor and host of "Open Studio,"brought us his weekly roundup of the best arts and cultural events around town. Homeland security expert Juliette Kayyem debriefed the latest snag in U.S.-North Korea relations, new updates from the Russia investigation, and more. The Royal Wedding is upon us. British Consul General in Boston Harriet Cross answered all of our questions about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's big day. Sue O'Connell, host of "The Take" on NECN, discussed anti-gay gubernatorial candidate Scott Lively's race against Charlie Baker. With "The Omnivore's Dilemma," author and journalist Michael Pollan changed the way we thought about food. With his latest book, "How To Change Your Mind," could he do the same for how we think about psychedelic drugs? Pollan discussed his new book, and we opened up the lines and asked about your own experiences.
