    RuPaul: the man, the queen, the legend

    Yeah, we're going to talk about the trade war and corporate earnings today. We'll do the numbers, too. But let's be honest: The main event is Kai Ryssdal's conversation with RuPaul. They got coffee in West Hollywood last week to talk about the business Ru has built on drag and how he became the "Queen of Queens." Plus, what the holiday season will look like without Toys R Us.

    Why RuPaul is the "Queen of Queens"

    It's hard to think about about the term "drag queen" and not think of RuPaul. He is probably best known for hosting "RuPaul's Drag Race" (for which he's won three Emmys, including this year's award for best reality TV competition), but he's also created an industry out of the drag world, which he's been a part of for over three decades. "I've earned the right to say I am definitely the Queen of Queens," RuPaul said. "I'm the most famous drag queen in the world. I'm the most famous drag queen ever in the history of humans on this planet."

Then we look at the mechanics behind the ever-growing Mega Millions lottery prize, which has surpassed $1 billion. How do lottery totals get this high?

    87: Why is the price of college such a mystery?

    With "early decision" and "early action" deadlines looming for colleges across the United States, graduating high school seniors are stuck figuring what any given school will actually cost. They're pondering the mix of private loans, federal loans, scholarships and grants, and factoring in housing, books and fees before they sign on any dotted lines. Those in the know understand that the public sticker price for a college is often not the actual price a student will pay. But what, then, is the price? And why is it so opaque? We hear a bit from three high school seniors in the midst of navigating all this. Then Kim Clark, assistant director of the Education Writers Association, makes us smart on how the system got this way and what it means for families (heard of the Chivas Regal effect?). Plus, your feedback on our smart homes episode. Don't forget to join our Facebook group for more Make Me Smart all week long! This episode is brought to you by Schwab, Gobble, Navy Federal Credit Union and SweeTango Apples.

    Millennials say funding is the key to better public education

    (U.S. Edition) The Trump administration is rolling out new rules that will allow more people to purchase health insurance that doesn’t meet ACA requirements, meaning some of those plans won’t cover pre-existing conditions. Meanwhile, we look into how women make 80 cents for every dollar made by men, and how this kind of gap follows them into retirement. Then we head to education, where University of Chicago professor Cathy Cohen’s GenForward survey examined how millennials looked at public education. Today's show is sponsored by GAIN Capital Group (gaincapital.com), Navy Federal Credit Union (navyfederal.org) and PayPal (paypal.com).
