Happy new year! Coming up on today's show: 

  • We look back on the big stories of 2015 and look forward to what 2016 may bring with members of the WNYC news team -- including host Jami Floyd, reporters Andrea Bernstein and Matt Katz, metro editor David Lewis and reporters Karen Rouse and Kate Hinds.
  • Nate Silver, the statistician and the founder and editor-in-chief of ESPN's FiveThirtyEight, talks presidential polling and his sports picks for 2016.
  • Random House executive editor Jon Meacham discusses his newest book, on the political legacy of former President George H.W. Bush.
  • For New Year's Day, we check back in with listeners to see how they did with their 2015 resolutions.
