    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, host Brian Becker is joined by Sarah Sloan of the ANSWER Coalition, who examines the tough new economic sanctions imposed on North Korea by the UN Security Council following its nuclear weapon test.

    The US prepares to launch massive war games simulating the invasion and destruction of North Korea.

    In the second segment, Becker is joined by independent political commentator Wahid Azal to analyze why Saudi Arabia and the countries of the Gulf Cooperation Council have now decided to classify Hezbollah as a terrorist organization. What does the terrorist designation mean and what are the roots of Hezbollah as a political and social movement?

    Women's rights on the chopping block. The Supreme Court takes up a Texas law that imposes strict regulations on abortion clinics and doctors. Thousands protested outside of the Supreme Court against the law. Karina Garcia of Women Organized to Resist and Defend (WORD) and Mara Verheyden-Hilliard join Becker to discuss just how significant this case is and what women are doing to fight for reproductive rights.
