This week, we'll speak with Harvard law prof Lawrence Lessig. He has a plan to curb the pernicious influence of money in politics that's so crazy, it just might work. We push him on the details.

Then we ask George Lakoff, a cognitive linguist at UC Berkeley, to help us understand why so many people think that the ACA includes a provision for "free birth control," when it so obviously does not.
