    Donald Trump may have won the US election, but until January Barack Obama continues on as US President, so what legacy will he leave behind? And, Colombian authorities have signed a new peace accord with FARC rebels, after the previous agreement was rejected in a national referendum in October.

    We all know how the US elections went last week — but until January, the US President is still Barack Obama. Given that, and the dramatic shifts that lie ahead with a Trump Presidency, we’ll be looking at what Obama’s final months in office might look like, as well as the legacy he’s going to leave. We speak to writer and political commentator, Rob Taub.

    Colombian authorities have signed a new peace accord with FARC rebels, after the previous agreement was narrowly rejected in a nationwide referendum back in October. Since early November, both sides have been negotiating a reconsideration of that previous deal. The new deal between the Colombian government and FARC rebels was reached in Havana, Cuba on Saturday.  We speak to Marc Chernick, Professor at Georgetown University's Center for Latin American Studies
