Coming up on today's show:
- John Kasich, the Republican governor of Ohio who ran for president in 2016 and is the author of Two Paths: America Divided or United (Thomas Dunne Books, 2017), looks back on the tumult of the 2016 race for the Republican presidential nomination and where the party goes from here.
- Alissa Rubin, The New York Times bureau chief in Paris, talks about the results of the French election on Sunday and next month’s run-off between the top two candidates, plus deconstructs how the French identity is wrapped up in the country’s politics.
- The United States may be behind other advanced nations when it comes to treating healthcare as a human right, but American law protects free speech as a right more often and more intensely than anywhere in the world. Floyd Abrams, a senior partner in the Cahill Gordon & Reindel law firm, who has litigated cases ranging from the Pentagon Papers case to Citizens United and has taught as a visiting lecturer at the Yale Law School and is the author of The Soul of the First Amendment, examines why the first amendment is so vital to the nation's identity.
