Tonight on the program, we examine the large amount of funds used by both presidential campaigns to target undecided voters. Also: understanding why the United States has so much debt, why the European debt crisis hasn't come up in the campaign more often, the Syrian Civil War threatens Aleppo's heritage, and using new technology to listen to a 134-year-old tin foil recording.
