This somber week has been punctuated by series of news events – from Monopoly’s Rich Uncle Pennybags showing up at the Equifax hearing, to a last-minute press briefing by the Secretary of State, and the tragic turn that moved some country musicians and Republicans to open their minds on gun control.

Now, it appears Republicans might be ready to move forward on a gun control measure, with the blessing of the NRA. Equifax, which compromised the financial data of more than 145 million Americans, might be making money off their credit monitoring services. And Secretary of State Rex Tillerson did not quite deny calling President Trump a moron.

Jim Braude was joined by former communications director for Governor Patrick’s administration, Jesse Mermell and Boston Herald Columnist and host of “Michael in the Morning” Michael Graham to discuss this week’s news.
