Jon and Tommy talk to Samantha Power and Ben Rhodes about Obama's final year in office. In London they discuss Trump's cancelled visit and in Trump's favorite country of Norway, they talk prison reform and the rise of right-wing extremism.

Keep It kicks off its first episode talking Oprah and the Golden Globes and follows it up Rostam, Kara Brown, and Louis Virtel discussing #MeToo, Aziz Ansari, and Woody Allen.

On Pod Save the World, Tommy continues the conversation with Samantha Power, Ben Rhodes, and Greg Barker on Obama's final year. Before that he spoke with FBI Agent Ali Soufan about investigating the USS Cole and 9/11 attacks.

Pod Save the People talk about the Goucher College Prison Education Program (GPEP), which reverses the school-to-prison pipeline by providing college education to incarcerated adults. In the following show they have Congressman Joe Crowley (NY-14) on to discuss impeachment, DACA, and TPS.

Lovett or Leave It discusses the (brief) shutdown and in their London show they discuss racist royals and the Hawaii false alarm that already feels like it was five months ago.

Finally, on Majority54, Jason Kander talks college affordability with Curry Oglesby and voting rights with Desmond Meade, the Founder and President of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition.

Awww. Looks like Amsterdam won't be released.

That was an interesting show - and it's almost disappointing, as one of the things they riffed on was the new US Ambassador's press conference where he refused to answer questions, was told "This is the Netherlands, you have to answer questions here.". During the relatively raucous - but respectful Q&A, they dodged a number of questions and when a member noted that they were doing so, retreated into platitudes.

I guess I hope that the decision not to release it (or mention NL in their "we just went on tour" references last episode) was made prior to the show and wasn't a "ehhh, this one doesn't reflect as well, let's not go there" PR move.
