FROM THIS EPISODE

Britain’s historic vote to leave the European Union has already toppled Prime Minister David Cameron, rattled global markets and sent the pound sterling to its lowest point in 3 decades. And today is just Day One of the Brexit’s reverberations. It’s a shocking end to a bitter campaign to decide the future of the country which once played a guiding role in the EU.

We’re going to be hearing more about what Britain's vote to leave the EU means for the U.S. -- about populist sentiment and concerns about border control -- and whether there is any parallel between Britain and the U.S. Is the “Leave” movement’s populist success story a sign of things to come on this side of the pond?
