This week, contributors Matt Ruby and Charles Gould join us to discuss whether President Trump is, in fact, “winning” as Vox’s Ezra Klein recently suggested. We’re also joined by Charles Hinshaw to discuss the Academy Award nominated Chilean film, A Fantastic Woman, directed by Sebastián Lelio and starring Daniela Vega. Along the way, we’ll also hear from a woman named Ulrika, who told us about how she became more active after being hurt in an accident; Radio Dispatch’s John Knefel shares his thoughts on how conspiratorial thinking has shaped the GOP and its conservative base from the time of Richard Nixon to today; and we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by Anna Burch from her upcoming session of BTR Live Studio.

Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
