From day one, it was clear that Donald Trump was like no president this country had ever seen. Eight months into his term, we talk to Harvard Law professor Jack Goldsmith about the lasting impact Trump may have on the presidency, itself. Then, historian Dan Jones on the Knights Templar, the Medieval secret society that inspired "The Da Vinci Code".

In his new book, novelist Nicholson Baker details what he calls the "assault on paper" being carried out by libraries all around the country. Over the past 50 years, tons of old newspapers and books have been discarded, on the assumption that old paper is past preservation and is useless. Baker argues that, due to this misguided approach, a large part of America’s journalistic and literary legacy is irretrievably lost. Nicholson Baker is president of the American Newspaper Repository.
