In this Monday, Jan. 23, 2017 photo, President Donald Trump signs an executive order to withdraw the U.S. from the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Coming up on today's show:

  • Francoise Girard, president of the International Women’s Health Coalition (IWHC), discusses President Donald Trump’s executive order, which reactivated what critics call the ‘global gag rule,’ which bans international NGOs that receive U.S. funding from providing or offering information about abortions.
  • Brigid Bergin, City Hall and politics reporter for WNYC, discusses Mayor Bill de Blasio's  $84.7 billion proposed budget for next year, which does not include provisions to deal with fallout from Trump administration policies.
  • Arlie Hochschild, professor of sociology at the University of California, Berkeley, and a finalist for the National Book Award for her book, Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right (New Press, 2016), discusses her reporting on conservative Americans -- including the emotional appeal of a candidate like Donald Trump, and looks at the forces behind our increasingly politically-divided country.
  • Rebecca Carroll, the producer of a series of projects about race at WNYC, and Kevin Young, a poet and the director of The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, preview an upcoming “micro-conversation” at The Schomburg Center called 'That Extra Work We Do As Black Folks.’
