Commuters in large metro areas spend at least 30 minutes on average getting to work every day, according to the U.S. Census Bureau's American Community Survey. One way to reduce traffic and the number of hours workers spend commuting is to have more people work from home more often. Host Jeremy Hobson talks with Scott Mautz, a former executive at Procter & Gamble who writes about business. Also, 23-year-old Fatou "Toufah" Jallow, who won Gambia's top beauty pageant when she was 18 years old, is one of several Gambia women who came forward to accuse former president Yahya Jammeh of rape and sexual abuse. Host Robin Young speaks with Jallow about the alleged abuse that took place when she was a teenager. That and more, in hour two of Here & Now's July 23, 2019 full broadcast.
