    The Department of Justice has opened a probe into the death of Alton Sterling, who was killed by police in Baton Rouge, Louisiana this week. The two Sams discuss how Congress could do a lot more to pass measures to crack down on trigger-happy cops.

    Also, The Intercept’s Lee Fang joined us to talk about 2016, and the many ways through which corporations try to get their way in Washington.

    And, Hillary Clinton released a plan on college debt that isn’t a total joke. We chat to progressive journalist Paul Blest about it. Plus, the latest on troop withdrawals in Afghanistan — or lack thereof.
