Coming up on today's show:

  • The people of Britain shocked the world after voting to leave the European Union on Thursday. The "Brexit" vote plunged markets around the world, and prompted Prime Minister David Cameron to announce his resignation. Simon Schama, a London-based writer, professor, and contributing editor to the Financial Times, discusses the consequences of the vote along with Mark Gilbert, a columnist with Bloomberg View.
  • The Supreme Court announced Thursday that it had reached a 4-4 decision in its ruling on President Barack Obama's immigration plan, which he had implemented through executive action in 2014. The court's stalemate allows for a lower court's decision to stand, which blocks Obama's immigration plan. Eric Citron, a partner at the law firm Goldstein & Russell and a former clerk to Justices Sandra Day O'Connor and Elena Kagan, discusses the precedent set by this ruling.

  • Rafer Guzman, film critic for Newsday, drops by to review the big new releases, including the new horror film "The Neon Demon," the historical war film "Free State of Jones," and the survival horror thriller "The Shallows."
  • In "Swiss Army Man," a new dramatic comedy out today, actor Daniel Radcliffe plays a character that befriends a dead body that guides him home. Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, directors of the film, join The Takeaway to discuss their latest project.
  • Americans owe $1.3 trillion in student debt. The rise in borrowing is closely tied to the rise in tuition rates and the uptick in enrollment at for-profit colleges. Gianna Toboni, a correspondent and producer for VICE on HBO, examines the nation's student debt crisis. 
  • DJ Shadow, an American producer and disc jockey, joins The Takeaway to talk about the evolution of his craft, and his new album, “The Mountain Will Fall,” which is out today.
