Hosted by  • 

We start today with the surprise news that Sepp Blatter, president of soccer’s world governing body, FIFA, is resigning. Why, and what could it mean for the growing corruption scandal around FIFA? Then, the TSA is replacing its director after the agency failed numerous airport security tests. Should fliers be worried? In our weekly TV roundup, it’s all about reality TV: The Bachelorette and a scripted show set in a world based on the Bachelor franchise. Also, comedian Eddie Izzard discusses his latest show, Force Majeure. And finally, a primer on the proper vocabulary to use when talking and writing about transgender people.
