This week, we’re dedicating the full hour to politics! The Mass Politics Profs give their insight and analysis on local and national politics, helping to sort out what’s happening on Beacon Hill and in the Oval Office. 

In our first segment, we discuss national politics, including the short-lived government shutdown, the future of Dreamers, the short-term pros and long-term cons of the tax bill and the Trump administration's decision to understaff federal agencies.

In our second segment, we talk about how the #MeToo movement has affected the Trump administration, most recently with the resignation of Rob Porter. Then we move on to Massachusetts politics, discussing the upcoming showdown between Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley and Rep. Mike Capuano, a potential political fight between Reps. Seth Moulton and Joe Kennedy, and the end Linda Dorcena Forry's time in public office.
