Hurricane Harvey dumped an estimated 27 trillion gallons of water on Texas and Louisiana and will likely be the most expensive storm in US history.  One monster hurricane can cause serious economic damage, so what happens when two storms hit with two weeks of each other? We’ll look at how natural disasters affect the economy with Brian Milligan.

4:20 – Family Time: Slowing Down in a High-Speed World

We’ll talk with Benjamin Wiker about this and other forgotten details of the Reformations.
