Kai Wright fills in for Brian Lehrer. Coming up on today's show:

  • Joo-Hyun Kang, director of Communities United for Police Reform, and Dick Dadey, executive director of the watchdog group Citizens Union, discuss their organizations' proposals on strengthening police accountability.
  • As Hofstra prepares to host the first debate in September, Larry Levy, executive dean of the National Center for Suburban Studies at Hofstra University, talks about why the suburbs like Long Island's are an ideal vantage point to view this year's presidential election.
  • Dr. C. Nicole Mason, executive director of the Center for Research and Policy in the Public Interest at the New York Women's Foundation, shares her own story about "making it" and the roadblocks she navigated (that so many can't).
  • Stan Beecham, Georgia-based sports psychologist, takes us into the psychology of Olympians.
