This week, we discuss the U.S. Justice Department’s attempt to block the Halliburton/Baker Hughes merger, a $20.8 billion settlement related to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill, and players from the World Cup-winning U.S. national women's soccer team fighting for equal pay.

This week’s panel of non-experts includes:

  • Houston Chronicle writer and Wait, Wait…Don't Tell Me! panelist Kyrie O'Connor;
  • Texas Leftist blogger Wayne Ashley;
  • Russ Capper, founder of The BusinessMakers.com and The Energy Makers.com video shows.
