Dealing with money in relationships is often stressful. For the new episode out today, Anna Sale, host of WNYC's podcast Death Sex & Money, talked to several couples trying to balance their checkbooks with their love life -- from a couple that thought they had money all figured out until they had a daughter and one partner stayed home; to an engaged couple that broke it off after they couldn't agree to the terms of a pre-nup.

Staten Island has traditionally been a Republican stronghold. Joe Lhota campaigned there Friday with the former Mayor, Rudy Giuliani. But with Bill de Blasio looking at historic margins, there's a possibility all five boroughs might vote for the Democrat. Plus — more on who's giving to Bill de Blasio, and how his campaign is getting less and less transparent.
Saturday, October 26, 2013
Bill de Blasio is starting to reel in some serious money — behind closed doors. Hillary Clinton is holding a public campaign event in Virginia, but in New York, the press was barred. With a 40 percent gap in the polls, much of the city is beginning to think seriously about what Bill de Blasio will do as Mayor. And Joe Lhota still can't stop stepping on his own message. WNYC's Andrea Bernstein, Anna Sale, and Brigid Bergin break it all down.

After announcing last year that he was “skeptical” about whether global warming is linked to human activity, Christie today said “climate change is real and it’s impacting our state.” He’s done some reading and had some talks, and though “I’m certainly not a scientist”, he now says “it’s time to defer to the experts.”
Under pressure from the Koch brothers-funded Americans for Prosperity and other conservative groups to pull out of a greenhouse gas limiting program, Christie gave a speech today full of talk about how New Jersey will lead in environmental measures -- oh and he is pulling New Jersey out of the northeast’s cap-and-trade program, the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (a “gimmicky program that hasn’t worked”). For New Jersey's own good.
While a poll released today by the NRDC indicates that more New Jersey voters want the program than don’t, the move may say more about Christie’s 2012 aspirations than the will of the people of New Jersey.
