This week, we speak with Mike Tomasky of the Daily Beast about the Pope's address to Congress and his propensity to twist conservatives into knots.


Then we'll be joined by RH Reality Check Senior Legal Analyst Imani Gandy, AKA the Angry Black Lady, about the legal battles being waged behind the scenes over those Planned Parenthood videos. 

Finally, we'll speak with Frank Hyman, a true blue Southerner who argues that the Confederacy was a "con-job" for all but the most affluent Southerners, and its legacy continues to be one today.
