Podcast: Prisoners pick apples, slaughterhouse audits and stopping invasive species

The cover story for this week's edition of the Capital Press is on prison inmates recruited to pick apples near Quincy, Wash. Prisoners were bused 300 miles from Forks to pick high-value apple varieties because of the worst labor shortage in a decade, Dan Wheat reports.

Mateusz Perkowski talks about slaughterhouse audits and Grupo Bimbo's court battle for Sara Lee's baked goods division.

Tim Hearden examines a legislative push for increased efforts to stop invasive species at the border and the seasonal forecast for California.
