FROM THIS EPISODE

John Boehner resigned from Congress this morning. Now, a California Republican, Congressman Kevin McCarthy, is considered the leading candidate to replace Boehner as Speaker of the House. That’s despite the fact that he’s only been a member of Congress for nine years.

And it’s been a big week for the Republican party in general. Last night Jeb Bush made a gaffe about African-American voters. On Monday Scott Walker left the presidential race, bashing Donald Trump on his way out. And Carly Fiorina has upped her opposition to Planned Parenthood.

Next, a new documentary looks at the rise and fall of the Black Panthers.

Finally we discuss this weekend's movie releases, including a torture film from Eli Roth, a warm and fuzzy feel-good from Nancy Meyers, and a gay rights period piece.

The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution 16 MIN, 23 SEC

Here’s one point of a 10-point manifesto: “We want an immediate end to police brutality and murder of black people.” That’s not from Black Lives Matter, but the Black Panther Party—50 years ago. Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale founded the Black Panther Party in Oakland in 1966. A new documentary looks at the group’s rise and fall.
