This week, we speak Christie-gate, or whatever, with syndicated columnist and show favorite Tina Dupuy.


Then we're joined by Christopher Petrella, a doctoral candidate at UC Berkeley, who explains why the profit motive accounts for the fact that people of color are even more disproportionately represented in private prisons than public corrections systems. 

Finally, economist Heather Boushey -- a senior fellow at CAP and director of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth -- tells us why America's workplaces are a better indicator of how we value families than anything else.
