    Gold Mining Returns in California -- Gold mining is returning to California more than 150 years after prospectors rushed to the state hoping to strike it rich. Gold prices have been strong and mining companies are reopening hard rock mines in the Sierra Nevada foothills that have been shuttered for decades.

    It's Your World (a broadcast of the World Affairs Council) The U.S. vs Iran: A Secret War For three decades, the United States and Iran have engaged in a secret war. It began with the Iranian revolution in 1979 and simmers today in Iraq and the Persian Gulf. The fighting takes place in the shadows, between the CIA and its network of spies and Iran's intelligence agency, and at sea, with Iranians in small speedboats attacking Western oil tankers. This conflict has frustrated five American presidents, divided administrations and repeatedly threatened to bring the two nations into open warfare. A senior historian for the federal government, David Crist spent more than 10 years researching and writing "The Twilight War," and he joins the show to discuss a number of important stories of military and intelligence operations by both sides, including successes, failures and their unexpected consequences.
