    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker discusses the Democratic debate between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton that will be taking place in New Hampshire tonight.

    Brian is joined by author and activist Kevin Zeese to discuss the strong showing of Sanders in Iowa, the popularity of Sanders among young Democratic voters, and if his campaign can change U.S. politics.

    In the second segment, Becker is joined by James Jordan, the national co-coordinator of the Alliance for Global Justice, to analyze today's visit of Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos to Washington, DC to meet with President Obama. The visit comes as the peace process between the Colombian government and FARC rebels picks up steam. Can the peace process ending the civil war hold? Why are so many trade unionists being killed in Colombia?

    Finally, author and journalist Nomi Prins joins Becker for a conversation about whether or not a new economic crisis is possible, or even inevitable. Prins also discusses the concept behind her newest book All The President's Bankers: The Hidden Alliances That Drive American Power.
