A look at what we have learned so far from the public hearings of the January 6 Committee. Diane talks to Ryan Goodman, professor at New York University's School of Law. He explains what is next in the investigation, including whether we might see criminal charges against former President Donald Trump.
What are Americans so angry about? This is a question that New Yorker staff writer Evan Osnos asks in his latest book, “Wildland: the Making of America’s Fury.”
Osnos’ deep research inside three very different communities — Greenwich, Connecticut, Clarksburg, West Virginia, and Chicago, Illinois — sheds new light on why the United States seems as deeply divided as anytime in recent history. He details both the sources of our disconnectedness, and the sometimes inadvertent ways we impact one another.
Evan Osnos joined Diane to talk about why deep tensions between individual freedoms and the common good are roiling our nation and what, if anything, could lead to change.
