This week Pope Francis marks his fifth year as head of the Catholic Church. His impact has been huge, and controversial. New York Times columnist Ross Douthat explores his papacy in a new book, “To Change the Church: Pope Francis and the Future of Catholicism.”
Then, the diversity visa lottery has become one of President Trump’s favorite punching bags when it comes to immigration policy. But much of what he has said about it has been simply untrue. Tom is joined by an expert who helps separate fact from fiction and gets an account of a first-hand experience from a lottery winner.
