Today on the show:
- Joanna Weiss, editor of Experience, a magazine published by Northeastern University, and Dante Ramos, columnist and Deputy Managing Editor of the Ideas section for the Boston Globe, discuss the latest local and national political headlines.
- The GroundTruth Project's Charlie Sennott talked about the most recent developments in the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
- Sen. Elizabeth Warren campaigned in Iowa over the weekend after announcing the launch of an exploratory committee for a presidential run in 2020. Many of Warren's critics, like Hilary Clinton's in 2016, call her "unlikable" and choose to focus on this rather than her political ideas. We opened the lines to hear if our listeners think the idea of likability is gender-biased or if it is an important quality in a presidential candidate.
- TV expert Bob Thompson gave us his list of the best and worst shows on television.
- Irene Monroe and Emmett Price joined us for another edition of All Revved Up.
- Professor emeritus of international relations and history at Boston University Andrew Bacevich discussed the Trump administration's actions in Syria.
- WGBH's Adam Reilly joined us to talk about covering Warren's campaign stops in Iowa this weekend.
