    On today's episode of Loud & Clear, Brian Becker is joined by Joelle Lingat, Secretary General of Anakbayan, to discuss Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte's visit to China.

    Is Duterte's trip a typical visit abroad, or is he in the midst of making a pivot to China? With his rhetoric towards the United States heating up, could the century old relationship with Washington actually be broken? What would it mean for the region and for Obama’s pivot to Asia?

    President Obama will deliver a speech today at a high school in Washington, DC outlining what he says is the progress his administration has made to improve education over the past eight years. But does his narrative gel with the reality that many educators and students face across the country? Becker is joined by Curry Malott, a Professor of Education at West Chester University to discuss Obama's education legacy.

    The Republican Civil War is still in full swing after perhaps the most disastrous stretch of Donald Trump’s campaign. The Republican donor class, which regularly injects hundreds of millions of dollars into election campaigns, seems to largely be sitting it out when it comes to the top of the ticket. Ted Rall, editorial cartoonist and writer, joins Becker.
