    In our first hour, we were joined by Caleb Maupin to talk about the politics of the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, the events taking place in the city and what they portend for politics across the country, and how we're seeing the reignition of longstanding schisms in the push to take down memorials to the Confederacy.

    In our second hour, we were joined by Ian Miles Cheong to talk about the economic roots of the sentiments that have ignited American politics following the death of George Floyd about decades of police violence against and social oppression of black Americans in the post-Civil Rights era.

    In our third hour, we were joined by Rick Sanchez to talk about his career, to give advice to broadcasters, and to talk about de-dollarization as China moves to reduce its dependency on the USD - and what implications that move, along with the wider burgeoning global economic crisis, on credit markets in America and around the world.
