This week, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) talks to us about dark money in politics, the biggest obstacles to passing big, bipartisan climate laws, and what he hopes President Joe Biden can accomplish during this term. 

Then, Maurice Mitchell, National Director of the Working Families Party, joins the show to talk about centering racial and economic justice in infrastructure plans and how to build back to battle climate change.
