Hosted by  • 

Merrick Garland, President Obama’s pick to fill Antonin Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court, is a moderate judge from the D.C. Circuit Court. What else do we know about him, as a justice and as a person? Then, a look at how conservative leaders in D.C. are developing their plan to defeat Donald Trump. Next, the federal government has issued new guidelines for opioid prescriptions. Could these suggestions help the addiction epidemic? Music critic Ben Ratliff’s new book is a kind of modern music appreciation tome. Madeleine gets his listening tips. And finally, why is L.A.’s fashion week so fragmented?
