Stand-up comedy and and an open discussion with experts on how everything got to this point. Comedians Kelly McCarron and Aida Rodriguez do stand-up comedy on the shutdown and the wall, followed by a discussion with Matthew Craffey - head of the California Log Cabin Republicans - and Mark Peterson, a UCLA professor of political science and public policy. We talk about what a national emergency means, whether our politics reflects the worst of social media, and enjoy some surprise appearances from the audience. Insights, laughs, and maybe a little gossip add up to a very fun and interesting show.
