This week, we'll be joined by Mike Tomasky from the Daily Beast to discuss Hillary Clinton's much-ballyhooed speech on the economy, and why primary campaigns are so annoying to cover.

Then we'll speak with Brenda Choresi Carter, director of the Women Donors Network's Reflective Democracy Campaign, about a new study that finds that the overwhelming majority of elected prosecutors and district attorneys are white dudes -- and why that matters.

Finally, we'll talk to Nation contributor Ali Gharib about the Iran deal announced this week -- it's a BFD.
