    With deaths mounting from opioid overdoses, Donald Trump is expected to announce a state of emergency—beyond that, what will he do to address the crisis and who is responsible for it?

    On this episode of "Fault Lines," hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss the opioid crisis. The Trump administration is expected to declare a national state of emergency today, pursuant to a recommendation from the special White House commission charged with addressing the crisis.

    Garland and Lee will also discuss the role of big money in politics, and the widening divisions within both major parties.

    The hosts and guests will analyze top news stories and issues including mainstream media malpractice and populist, separatist, and regionalist movements.

    Scheduled guests include Dominic Carter — Political Reporter for Verizon Fios News; Katharine Houreld — Reuters East Africa Bureau Chief; Tim Black — host of "The Tim Black At Night Show" and "No Sell Outs"; Dr. Annette Bosworth — medical expert; and Steve Shaff — Executive Director of the Chesapeake Sustainable Business Council and founder of Community Vision Partners.
