Each episode will go deep on a big story you’ll definitely want to hear more about. We’ll share with you our best investigations (think private prisons, electoral skullduggery, Dark Money, and Trump's Russia connections), and informative interviews with our reporters and newsmakers. We're hoping to make your week more informed with the stories that really matter, told by us, the folks you trust for smart, fearless, reporting.
It's been a year since President Trump announced the US would pull out of the Paris climate accord. Join host Jamilah King as she speaks with Mother Jones environmental reporter Rebecca Leber about what's going on inside the Environmental Protection Agency, from its aggressive deregulation to the ethics scandals threatening to engulf Scott Pruitt, the agency's head. Reporter Pema Levy gives us a look inside the life and times of one of Trump's staunchest supporters, Fox News's Jeanine Pirro, and what her fiery television performances mean for the frightening future of right-wing punditry. Washington Bureau Chief David Corn brings us the latest in the Russia investigation; and finally, reporter David Beard has a jolt of good news from primary season in America.
