Why the Republicans are undermining the American economy. Why more Amtrak funding would have saved lives. Why increasing infrastructure spending would be a win for everyone.

Jeb Bush can’t decide whether he backs the invasion of Iraq or not.

Comedian Judy Gold explains acting in a new off Broadway musical, Clinton The Musical. Do Republicans go to play? What is it like to work with Louis CK? Jim Gaffigan’s new show and why being in a play forces you to be on time. Are boys easer to raise? Rewarding kids sarcasm is it a good thing or a bad thing? Why Judy thinks we use our phones to much and listen to Jusy’s new podcast.
