Coming up on today's show:

Guests include WNYC's Andrea Bernstein, POLITICO New York's Bill Mahoney, The Nation'Sarah Leonard, Slate's Michelle Goldberg, and Columbia University's Ester Fuchs.
  • New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer gives an update on his audit of the Board of Elections after complaints of polling problems and a WNYC report that found many fewer registered Democrats in Brooklyn compared to last year.
  • Former NYPD Officer Peter Liang's conviction has been downgraded from a judge, meaning he will not serve jail time for the shooting death of Akai Gurley. John Jay College's Delores Jones-Brown discusses the resolution of this rare case.
  • Commentator Robin Yassin-Kassab and Syrian human rights activist Leila Al-Shami offer an on-the-ground perspective of the Syrian crisis.
