GM Strike Update; Sandhill Cranes Make Ohio Comeback; Aarti Shahani Writes Memoir

The United Auto Workers strike against General Motors is now in its third week.  It's the longest strike against GM in half a century and both sides are feeling the economic impact as talks fail to produce an agreement.  We'll get an update on the strike and contract talks from a national reporter covering the industry and discuss whether consumers will be impacted. Then, the comeback of the Sandhill Crane in Ohio is celebrated as a success story among conservationists and wildlife experts.  We'll discuss what led to the crane's comeback even as a report raises concerns about the steady loss of other bird species.  Then, NPR correspondent, Aarti Shahani discusses her new memoir, "Here We Are" about her family's move to the United States.
