What Should We Expect From This Week’s Public Impeachment Hearings?
The impeachment inquiry goes public this week, but even before open hearings start Wednesday, clashes have played out behind the scenes with House Republicans pushing to call two key witnesses of their own: Hunter Biden and the whistleblower. This plan comes on top of the earlier Republican strategy of insisting that even if President Donald Trump did place personal contingencies on Ukrainian aid, doing so would not be out of the ordinary.

To discuss all this and more, Jim Braude was joined by Dan Primack, business editor at Axios, and Lylah Alphonse, managing editor of government rankings for U.S. News & World Report.

In ‘Attention Servicemember,’ Ben Brody Goes Beyond Government Spin
America’s longstanding military involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq have killed more than 7,000 American troops and hundreds of thousands of Afghan and Iraqi civilians. Ben Brody spent 15 years documenting the human toll of those wars, and the U.S. government’s attempts to shape the narrative surrounding the conflict, first as an Army photographer in Iraq and later as an independent photojournalist. Now he's telling the story of what he saw in a new book of photographs called "Attention Servicemember."

Nell Scovell On Getting An Apology From David Letterman, 10 Years Later
Ten years ago, Nell Scovell first told her story as a woman on the male-dominated writing staff for "Late Night With David Letterman," writing in Vanity Fair that she "walked away from [her] dream job" after just a few months over what she called a "hostile" and "demeaning" work environment. At the time, Letterman did not read her personal and heartfelt take-down of sexism in the industry. But this year, Scovell finally got Letterman to sit down with her to discuss her experiences working on his show, and to get an apology.

Jim Braude spoke with Nell Scovell about her experience and what has and hasn’t changed for women in television.
