This week Farai talks to Wisconsin’s Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes about what inspired his run for the U.S. Senate, and how he sees the politics of division. Then, foreign policy expert Hagar Chemali interviews Firuzeh Mahmoudi, co-founder and Executive Director of United for Iran, about the youth and woman-led protests for bodily autonomy in Iran. And on our weekly segment, ‘Sippin’ the Political Tea,’ Farai is joined by Michelle Singletary, financial columnist at The Washington Post and Bryan Greene, Vice President of Policy Advocacy at the National Association of REALTORS®, to break down how inflation and rising interest rates affect homeownership.
