Women's Basketball Makes History Maya Moore is the star player for the University of Connecticut Huskies. Last night, she scored 41 points in a 93-62 victory. It was the team's 89th victory , one more than the men's team at UCLA won in the early 1970's. While some sportswriters are saying they should not be compared , long-time ESPN women's basketball columnist Michelle Voepel offers a dissenting view.
Human Rights in the era of Donald Trump President Trump’s UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, said today the US might pull out of the United Nations’ Human Rights Council. Serious violators of human rights are members of the Council itself–and a US resignation could make things worse. Later on today’s show, now that he’s into his second term, comedian turned US Senator Al Franken is telling jokes again.
What happens when America retreats from the world?

León Krauze guest hosts.
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement.

Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
