FROM Richard Carradine
The Ghost in Barney's Beanery We can't do a Halloween show without a ghost story, and we take you now to Barney's Beanery in West Hollywood, a restaurant that's been on Santa Monica Boulevard for almost 91 years. That's long enough for a history of strange experiences, right up to the present day. We hear about one such experience from restaurant manager Jonah Dumont, who started working at Barney's just a year ago, and from Richard Carradine, founder of Ghost Hunters of Urban Los Angeles .
Trump's new look at civil rights and global warming President Trump is reportedly ready to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. We look at the possible consequences.

Later on today’s show, now that he’s into his second term, comedian turned US Senator Al Franken is telling jokes again.
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. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
