The agreement on a framework for a nuclear program deal with Iran was touted as historic by President Obama last week. Even so, many in Congress are not so sure, and want to make sure they have a chance to comb thru the details before agreeing to lift any sanctions. Sen. Bob Corker, Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has drawn up a bill that will give Congress a 60-day review period once an agreement is signed, and says he is close to getting enough votes to make the bill veto-proof.

4/6/16 Podcast Steve Roberts

As presidencies wind down, thoughts about legacies tend to wind up. For President Obama, domestically, there’s recovery from the economic crisis, his Affordable Care Act, even perhaps immigration reform. But in foreign affairs, well, there’s that huge chill with Russia, ending two wars but now jumping back into Iraq, al Qaeda now joined by several offshoots, and forget peace in the Middle East. Which brings us to Iran, and concerns from some in Congress that the president may not have negotiated hard enough, concerned on closing a deal for legacy’s sake. Steve discusses whether a presidents’ concern over legacy has any influence on those last couple years in office.

It will be Wisconsin vs Duke for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship, the Badgers having pulled off the upset over previously undefeated Kentucky in the semi-finals. For Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan, he’ll also learn Monday whether he’ll be inducted into the Hall of Fame. His coaching counterpart in the title game, Mike Krzyzewski, is already in it, and has four national titles to his credit. Ryan doesn’t have any, and needs to guard against his players suffering an emotional letdown following their big win Saturday. Earlier in the year, Duke beat the Badgers in Wisconsin by ten points.

4/6/15 Podcast Aaron Katersky

And now for the jury, the tough part… deciding whether Dzhiokhar Tsarnaev should die for his crimes, or spend the rest of his life in prison. It has been two decades since Timothy McVeigh set off a truck bomb at a federal office building in Oklahoma City killing 168, and a jury ordered him executed. For this jury, they will have to weigh the defense argument that Tsarnaev’s life should be spared, as he was under the influence of his older brother during their premeditated bombing that took 3 lives and injured 264. The prosecution is hoping that their relentless presentation of graphic testimony and photos will persuade them otherwise.

4/3/15 Podcast Mary Bruce

President Barack Obama heralded a framework nuclear understanding with Iran as a “historic” agreement and warned Congress Thursday against taking action that could upend work toward a final deal. Obama spoke hours after negotiators in Switzerland reached a framework agreement outlining limits on Iran’s nuclear program and setting the stage for work on a final deal over the next three months. Congressmen on both sides of the aisle want to take a look at things before showing much enthusiasm one way or the other. Israel is wary. And Iran, with economic sanctions now about to be lifted, is quite happy.
