“Behold the Power of the Squad” (with Francesca Fiorentini)

This week Erin Ryan and Alyssa Mastromonaco ponder the question: How do you solve a problem like Al Franken? Then, Francesca Fiorentini joins Kiran Deol and Dana Schwartz in studio to talk about the 4-congresswoman Squad and why women teaming up is so scary to certain presidents. We’ve also got a politics-free treat for you all this week: writer Taffy Brodesser-Akner stops by to talk about her wonderful new novel “Fleishman is in Trouble”. And as always, our Hills.

Show Notes:
