This week is Affordable Week. We will be investigating into the political complexity and myths of the Affordable Care Act, as well as learn about a third party candidate and the pricy game of running for US presidency.

We’ll talk with Dr. Benjamin D. Sommers, a health economist with Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health and a primary care physician who has conducted research on the effectiveness of the Affordable Care Act.

For our Third Eye perspective into the question this week we’ll wrap it up by talking with Zoltan Istvan, a third party candidate running for US president. He’s known as the science candidate, and promotes the ideas of Transhumanism.

Be sure to also check out our segment when we take questions to the streets of NYC!
