Wednesday on The Diane Rehm Show

Hour One
Possible Repercussions Of A US Debt Default At Home And Abroad

World leaders, bankers and political strategists warn of short and long term repercussions if Congress fails to raise the debt limit: The risks of a U-S default at home and abroad.

Hour Two
Why Alcohol Abuse Among Women Is On The Rise

Excessive drinking is the third leading cause of preventable death in the United States. It is responsible for roughly 23,000 deaths of American girls and women each year. Alcoholism is a more serious risk for early mortality than smoking, and it is more than twice as deadly for women than for men. Those statistics come from a new book by award-winning journalist Ann Dowsett Johnston. She takes an in-depth look at the psychological, social and workplace factors contributing to the growing problem of alcohol abuse among women. Johnston joins Diane to discuss the effects of alcohol addiction on her own life and society as a whole.
