Five Senior Citizens' Break into a Military Base

A discussion with Emmy Award winning filmmaker Helen Young who’s producing a documentary called “The Bangor 5.”

  It follows the case of five unlikely commandos, all over the age of 60, who executed a bold break-in at a military bases near Seattle that stockpiled nuclear weapons.  We also hear from Fordham Student and WFUV reporter Lucas Bifera.  He examines the diverse and growing number of New Yorkers who are studying the world’s most spoken language -- Mandarin Chinese.
