    Ian confirms the new normal for hurricanes

    Ian confirms the new normal for hurricanes

    Hurricane Ian made landfall in Florida on Wednesday afternoon as a high-end Category 4 storm. More than a million Floridians have already lost power. Other effects of the storm won’t be clear for days.

    Plus, low income Americans struggle to afford hurricane prep.

    And, Russia looks to annex parts of Ukraine.

    Guests: Axios' Andrew Freedman and Ayurella Horn-Muller, The Washington Post’s Mary Ilyushina

    Hurricane Ian slams Florida

    Economic déjà vu

    Economic déjà vu

    The British pound has hit the lowest point against the US Dollar since the 1790s. On Monday, the pound was at 1.03 compared to the dollar. This moment feels eerily similar to 2007, at the beginning of the Great Recession. But, as Axios’ Felix Salmon and Courtenay Brown tell us, that doesn’t mean we’re facing the same economic catastrophe now.

    Plus, Russian anger keeps growing in response to Putin’s draft.

    And, NASA takes on an asteroid.

    Guests: Axios' Felix Salmon, Courtenay Brown and Alison Snyder.

    The biggest midterm test for MAGA Republicans

    Democrats’ chances of beating the GOP in Arizona, a key swing state in the midterms, are growing. The Cook Political Report last week moved the Arizona senate race from its “toss up” category to "leans Democratic." Arizona Republicans nominated MAGA-aligned candidates in races across the state.

    Plus, spam text messages have exploded: how the FCC could respond.

    And, hurricane season picks up.

    Guests: Axios' Margaret Talev and Margaret Harding McGill.
