The Politics of Feminism: It's Not All about Gender Democrat Hillary Clinton would be the first woman president, but many self-styled "feminists" are not supporting her candidacy. Some advocates of women's rights back Bernie Sanders, while Republican Carly Fiorina insists that she and other conservatives are also "feminists." The idea has evolved from the suffragettes to Roe v. Wade to Betty Friedan to Beyoncé. Different opinions between and within generations could make a difference in this year's primary elections.
Will the Senate write a healthcare bill in secret? While Democrats and Republicans argue White House relations with Russia, another question is being decided behind closed doors: who gets help buying health insurance and who doesn't? We hear how the pros and cons are being shrouded in secrecy.
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border? León Krauze guest hosts.
