In commemorating the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, my guest is Don Dahler. The veteran broadcaster was one of the first network correspondents to describe the scene at the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Dahler, who was reporting for ABC News at the time, lived just blocks from Ground Zero. He was on GMA moments after the first plane crashed into the North Tower, and Dahler was part of ABC's coverage as the unthinkable became a reality.
Dahler went on to become anchor at CBS' New York flagship WCBS-TV and correspondent at CBS News.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo was one of the more popular politicians in his state and nationally. But with swirling sexual harassment allegations, Cuomo is about to becoming historic for the wrong reason as he announced his resignation. My guest Hank Sheinkopf, a longtime Democratic strategist, discusses what consequences Cuomo could still face now that resignation and impeachment are off the table and what the gubernatorial race could look like next year.
Examining The Bonfire of the Vanities with Ben Mankiewicz and Julie Salamon
"The Bonfire of the Vanities" went from one best-selling novels of the 1980s, but the film based on the Tom Wolfe ("The Right Stuff") book would go down as an all-time worst.
This edition of the podcast looks at why it failed so historically, despite an A-list cast (Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis and Melanie Griffith) or perhaps that's a major factor for the film's demise.
TCM host Ben Mankiewicz and film critic/author Julie Salamon, who host the TCM podcast "The Plot Thickens: The Devil's Candy" (based on Julie's book about the making of the movie) are here for an entertaining debate about the blockbuster flop. https://theplotthickens.tcm.com
