If Rod Rosenstein is out, what will it mean for Robert Mueller’s Russia probe? 8 MIN, 48 SEC

Rod Rosenstein still has his job... for now. We ask what happens if he resigns or is fired later this week when he meets with President Trump. We also discuss Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is facing a second allegation of sexual misconduct. Deborah Ramirez told the New Yorker that Kavanaugh exposed himself at a party during his freshman year at Yale. Kavanaugh denies it happened, and calls it a smear.

The many lives of Jane Fonda 14 MIN, 5 SEC

Jane Fonda has had many roles on and off screen, and many identities: girl next door, sex kitten, political activist, fitness guru. A new documentary explores these various incarnations. It’s called “Jane Fonda in 5 Acts.” Four of those acts are about how the various men in her life influenced her. Only the last act, when she’s in her ‘60s, is about Jane’s relationship with herself.

Guests:
Susan Lacy, Producer and director of “Jane Fonda In 5 Acts.”

With LA’s water policy change, ranchers in Eastern Sierra say their way of life is threatened 6 MIN, 30 SEC

Citing climate change, LA water officials are turning off the tap for ranchers hundreds of miles from here. The LA Department of Water and Power owns land east of Yosemite, near Crowley Lake. It leases that land to ranchers, and for decades, thanks to irrigation, that land has been lush. Now the LADWP says it can’t spare the water. The ranchers are furious.
