In This Episode

The Inflation Reduction Act is law, Liz Cheney is defeated, Donald Trump is still under investigation, and Dr. Oz is still looking for crudité. Then, filmmaker Alex Holder stops by the studio to talk about his documentary on Trump’s final days in office that was subpoenaed by the January 6th Committee.
