Longtime political analyst Norm Ornstein joins us to reflect on the upcoming anniversary of Donald Trump’s election. We discuss the “seeds of Trumpism,” the changing Republican Party and the future of American civic life. Plus, Ornstein opens up about his late son’s struggle with mental illness and his push for mental health policy reform.
To mark our podcast’s first anniversary, Brian and I return to Washington, D.C.—this time, to interview New Jersey Senator Cory Booker. There we find lawmakers on the Capitol steps with a megaphone, leading an impromptu rally on health care. After interviewing folks in the crowd, we sit down with Senator Booker to talk about the future of the Affordable Care Act, criminal justice reform, the documentary that captured his biggest failure, and living in Newark’s most dangerous neighborhoods. Plus, what it was like growing up African-American in Harrington Park, as one of “four raisins in a tub of sweet vanilla ice cream.”
Guest host John Molner (aka my husband) and I welcome Dr. Kerry Sulkowicz for a discussion about the psychology of leadership and his views on President Trump’s mental health. We also talk about why many mental health professionals won’t publicly comment on the psyche of public figures. Plus, Dr. Sulkowicz explains his unexpected path from practicing psychiatry and psychoanalysis to advising CEOs and corporate boards.
You may not know his name, but you know his work and his words. Like “climate change” instead of “global warming,” and “death tax” instead of “estate tax” — he’s really helped position policy for voters. But longtime Republican pollster and strategist Frank Luntz is not a happy camper right now, and he tells Katie and Brian why this election season is bringing him down. Let us know what you think: is our country in decline, or are you optimistic about the future? Leave a message: 929-224-4637

Dr. Tyson joins the podcast to discuss science in the Trump era, the future of space exploration, and why a TV appearance in 1989 changed his life. Plus, he gives a preview of his latest book, Astrophysics for People in a Hurry.
Former Clinton administration defense secretary — and Republican senator — William Cohen joined me on Yahoo News to talk about the sweeping changes President Trump is proposing to foreign and defense policy.

Since 1984, more women than men have died each year from heart disease. Heart disease is now the No. 1 killer of women, causing more deaths than all cancers combined. And yet only 56 percent of American women realize that heart disease is their greatest health threat. To combat this gap in understanding – and the heart disease epidemic itself – Barbra Streisand has co-founded the Women’s Heart Alliance, a collaboration between the Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles and the Ronald O. Perelman Heart Institute at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.

It’s a sobering statistic. A new American Cancer Society study found that members of Generation X and millennials face up to four times the risk of colon and rectal cancer as baby boomers. From the mid-1980s through 2013, colon cancer rates in adults aged 20 to 39 increased by one to two percent per year, according to the findings. For adults aged 40 to 54, rates increased by 0.5 to one percent annually from the mid-1990s through 2013.
I spoke with Dr. Otis Brawley, chief medical officer for the American Cancer Society, and Dr. Felice Schnoll-Sussman, director of the Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Weill Cornell Medical Center.
