This Week on Arizona Spotlight

A look at the latest generation of electric vehicles. Friday at 8:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. and Saturday at 5 p.m. on NPR (89.1 FM / 1550 AM).

Michel Marizco looks at the rapidly approaching "fiscal cliff," and the potential impact that it could have on security along the U.S. - Mexico border.

Ben Nead visits a newly-opened facility at Picacho Peak that is helping these cars to travel between Tucson and Phoenix, and in the process turning I-10 into an "electric highway."

And, a story making headlines around the world is claiming that the DNA sequence of the entity known as Bigfoot has been positively identified, settling the ongoing argument over the creature's existence once and for all. Not so fast, says author and crypto-zoologist Benjamin Radford, who tells Mark McLemore that this new evidence is far from being conclusive.
