Trump Announces Sanctions Against Turkey for Attacks on Kurds

U.S. Troops Pulling out of Northern Syria

As chaos continues to grow in Syria, President Trump has ordered all U.S. troops to withdraw from the north to avoid a conflict between Turkey and the Kurds. This will likely be a pullback of about 1,000 troops. Ginger Gibson, political reporter for Reuters, joins us for this, another resignation at the top of DHS, and the latest on the impeachment inquiry. Next, a Florida inmate filmed a secret documentary about the conditions inside Martin Correctional Institution. With oversized glasses that had cameras attached to them and a hollowed out Bible with a hidden camera in it, Scott Whitney filmed other inmates passed out on synthetic drugs, fights, mold covering kitchen walls and more. Romy Ellenbogen, reporter for the Miami Herald, joins us for what these hidden recordings show. Finally, how do you feel about eating alone? At home, Americans eat 45% of all meals alone and single diners at restaurants comprise about a quarter of party sizes. But while hectic schedules are a main caus...

2019 Noble Prize Winner, Dr. Gregg Semenza, Talks About His Cell Research

Before talking to Dr. Gregg Semenza, we could find ourselves in an unprecedented scenario: President Trump could be impeached in the House, acquitted in the Senate, and then re-elected in 2020. Congress would have nowhere to go in the event of another scandal, it might be politically impossible. David Nather, managing editor at Axios, joins us to talk about the impeachment inquiry. Next, something very exciting as we talk to a 2019 Nobel Prize winner! Earlier this week, Dr. Gregg Semenza and two others received the Nobel Prize for Medicine for their work into how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability. Because of their discoveries, there have been advancements that led to anemia and cancer drugs. Dr. Semenza, Professor of Genetic Medicine at Johns Hopkins University and 2019 Nobel Laureate, joins us to explain his work, how he reacted when he got the call notifying him he had won, and the high school teacher that inspired his love of science and discovery.

Wildfire Fear Leads PG&E to Cut Power to Hundreds of Thousands of Californians

Hundreds of thousands of Californians are experiencing planned power outages in an attempt to avoid wildfires sparked by wind-damaged PG&E electrical equipment. Last year’s Camp Fire was set off by PG&E equipment destroying the town of Paradise and killing 86 people. Matt Simon, science writer at Wired, joins us for all the conditions that got us here. Next, amid more scrutiny in the wake of the college admissions cheating scandal, the ACT has announced that it will lets students retake individual portions of the test they wish to improve instead of having to retake the entire test. These new scores will be added to a “superscore” for the student. Tawnell Hobbs, education reporter for the WSJ, joins us for what this all means for students taking college entrance exams. Finally, Apple and Google are pushing to transform the video game industry. Moving beyond traditional console and computer games, these companies are launching mobile game platforms like Apple Arcade and cloud base...

Wildfire Fear Leads PG&E to Cut Power to Hundreds of Thousands of Californians

FBI Confirms Samuel Little Is Most Prolific Serial Killer in U.S. History

The FBI has now confirmed that Samuel Little is the most prolific serial killer in U.S. history. Little has confessed to 93 murders. FBI crime analysts believe that all of his confessions are credible and law enforcement has been able to verify 50 confessions. One of the interesting parts of this is how many details Little remembers of his victims… names, dates, locations. Little has even sketched the faces of many of those victims. Now the FBI is looking for help from the public in matching the remaining unconfirmed confessions. Christine Palazzolo, crime analyst with the FBI’s Violent Crime Apprehension Program and Angela Williamson, DOJ ViCAP liason, join us to talk about Samuel Little. Next, we continue to talk about Samuel Little and how he managed to evade being connected to all these murders until he was convicted in 2014 for the strangling deaths of three women in Los Angeles. It was after being put in prison in California, that he spoke to a Texas Ranger and he began to c...

Trump Faces Backlash After Pulling Troops out of Syria

President Trump is facing criticism from both sides for a decision to withdraw troops in Syria for an expected Turkish attack on Kurds who have been U.S. allies in the fight against ISIS. He also threatened to destroy Turkey’s economy if they went too far. Morgan Chalfant, White House reporter for The Hill, joins us for more on Trump’s rationale, getting our troops out of endless wars. Next, there is a cheating scandal rocking the poker world and it is playing out over YouTube and online forums as internet detectives try to figure out what’s going on. Poker player, Mike Postle, is under investigation for cheating during live-streamed poker games and is being accused of making too perfect a call on hands. It’s not the hands he is winning, rather it is those he is losing. David Hill, contributor to The Ringer, joins us for more. Finally, more people are going to dealer lots to buy a new car and walking away with seven-year auto loans. These loans with longer terms have created an ...

Trump Faces Backlash After Pulling Troops out of Syria

Another Whistleblower Comes Forward

A second whistleblower has now come forward and spoken to the intelligence community inspector general about information that backs up the original whistleblower complaint about the president’s dealings with Ukraine. This comes as the former special envoy for Ukraine, Kurt Volker, also released text messages that seemed to imply that the Ukrainian president would have to agree to the investigations Trump wanted before they could confirm a trip to the White House. Ginger Gibson, political reporter for Reuters joins us for the latest. Next, co-working giant WeWork seemed destined for a huge public launch. The office space startup was valued at $47 billion before it filed for its IPO, and then in just about six weeks it all came crashing down. Once Adam Neumann, the founder of WeWork, filed its registration for the IPO and people got a look at the internal workings of the company, a ton of conflicts of interest and mismanagement was discovered. Then came news that Neumann frequently s...
