We were joined in our second hour by Andrew Spannaus from Italy to discuss the measures the country's government is taking to open its economy back up. After that, we spoke with Carmine Sabia about Trump's presidency, the stimulus bills as political compromises, and what he sees happening this election.

After that, we spoke with Kim Iversen about where people are most likely to contract the coronavirus, the feasibility of a long-term lockdown, and whether it makes sense to open back up.
