    Trump and Putin (with Peter Baker and Susan Glasser)

    Trump and Putin (with Peter Baker and Susan Glasser)

    Donald Trump is taking center stage in the midterm elections, even though he isn’t on the ballot. And to this day there are still unanswered questions about his presidency: what was the true nature of his relationship with Putin? Can he be held accountable for his crimes? Andy talks with veteran journalists Peter Baker of The New York Times and Susan Glasser of The New Yorker who have written a historic accounting of Trump’s presidency in their new book, The Divider to try and get some answers. The husband-and-wife team tell Andy what they learned when they were given unprecedented access to Trump and the people in his orbit.

    How Hunger in America Drives the Obesity Epidemic

    How Hunger in America Drives the Obesity Epidemic

    At its first hunger summit in 50 years, the White House announced a plan last week to end hunger and reduce obesity by 2030. Is that really possible, and what will it take to get there? Andy speaks with Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford, who specializes in obesity medicine, about the link between obesity and hunger plus how race, stress, and poverty play a role. Using examples from her life and her practice, she explains why obesity should be viewed and treated as the disease it is, using methods like medicine and surgery in tandem with diet and exercise.

    On the Road with Asylum Seekers

    On the Road with Asylum Seekers

    An immigrant’s unpredictable journey to America doesn’t end when they get to the border. Political stunts by Governors Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis sending asylum seekers to the steps of the U.S. Capitol and Martha’s Vineyard is the latest reminder. Andy speaks with two people embedded in the journey to the U.S., LA Times reporter Molly O’Toole and New York Times reporter Michael Shear, who explain the messy, lengthy process asylum seekers face. They discuss why deterrence policies don’t work, the flawed myths behind “good” and “bad” immigrants, and why we'll see more Afghan immigrants crossing through Central America.

    How Much Pain Will It Take to Crush Inflation? (with Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari)

    The Federal Reserve is continuing to raise interest rates in an attempt to crush record high inflation. But how far will they go, could it lead us into a recession with massive job loss, and how will stock markets react? Neel Kashkari, the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, offers a candid look at the tools at the Fed’s disposal and explains why they’re taking strong actions at the risk of economic pain for Americans.

    Why Democracy Really Is in Danger (with David Leonhardt)

    Why Democracy Really Is in Danger (with David Leonhardt)

    Election denialism represents a fundamental breakdown in our democracy, a problem America has never experienced in its history. But that’s not it. There’s also an increasingly alarming disconnection between public opinion and the power to shape American politics. Andy explores these two threats with New York Times senior writer David Leonhardt, who explains why candidates that win the most votes are less and less able to take power and address the country’s problems. They also dig into the specific policy changes that could help protect our democracy, from Electoral College reform bills to ranked choice voting.

    How We Can Put Every Kid through College

    How We Can Put Every Kid through College

    What if every baby could receive a college savings account, regardless of the financial situation they’re born into? That’s the mission behind baby bonds, a government policy championed by Senator Cory Booker that would provide children with a nest egg to start off adulthood. Andy speaks with economist Darrick Hamilton, who proposed the policy in 2010 as a mechanism to reduce the racial wealth gap in the United States, and St. Paul Mayor Melvin Carter, who created a program in his city. They explain how baby bonds could eliminate college debt, why we should invest in kids we don’t personally know, and the money and public support it would take to expand local programs to the national level.

Student Loans?!?!

A brand new COVID vaccine is approved and you publish a biased broadcast on student loans. Think you’re losing your way.
