What might be lurking in the tax returns that Republican front-runner Donald Trump refuses to make public? If anyone is in a position to offer an informed theory, it's David Cay Johnston, who won a Pulitzer Prize working the tax beat for the New York Times. He's first up on this week's show.

Then, as Obama embarks on a historic visit to Cuba, we're joined by UT Austin research fellow Julia Sweig, who just returned from Cuba to offer a perspective on what's going on down there that you won't often hear on the evening news.


Finally, we speak to Martin Longman, web editor for The Washington Monthly -- you may know him better as the blogger known as Booman -- about Obama's nomination of Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. Some progressives aren't pleased with the pick.
