Previewing The Iowa Caucuses; Chesapeake Shakespeare's "Unscene"

Jan 29, 2016


Today, we start with presidential politics.  The Iowa caucuses are on Monday.  Once again, it’s in to be an "outsider" -- a candidate who's outside the political mainstream, at any rate.  That might be good news for Trump, Cruz and Sanders, but Clinton, Rubio and Bush may take comfort in knowing that as many as 60% of American voters have yet to make up their minds.  Jenna Johnson is covering the Trump campaign for the Washington Post.  She joins us on the phone from Des Moines, Iowa, along with Tom's studio guests: Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist E.R. Shipp from Morgan State University, and political science professor Lester Spence from Johns Hopkins. 

Plus, actor and director Seamus Miller joins Tom to talk about Blood and Courage, a new troupe of up and coming actors at the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company.  Their new production opens tonight.  It’s a pastiche of some of the Bard’s clips from the cutting room floor.
