5/14/15 Podcast Brad Garrett

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has such poor management over its airport security equipment that the agency does not know if its screening machines are working, according to an audit by the Office of Inspector General. American lives may be at risk due to ineffective maintenance of its equipment, which has cost taxpayers $1.2 billion. Brad discusses the IG’s findings, and the concerns it raises.

5/12/15 Podcast Jim Ryan

John Hinckley Jr. is on the verge of doing what no one else ever has: Shooting an American president and eventually walking free. The man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in 1981 in a bizarre attempt to impress actress Jodie Foster is one step closer to being released from St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Washington, D.C. Even prosecutors have given up hope of keeping the 59-year-old confined and are focused on beefing up his travel restrictions.

5/12/15 Podcast Aaron Katersky

The NFL came down hard on its biggest star and its championship team, telling Tom Brady and the Patriots that no one is allowed to mess with the rules of the game. The league suspended the Super Bowl MVP Monday for the first four games of the season, fined the New England Patriots $1 million and took away two draft picks as punishment for deflating footballs used in the AFC title game. Brady’s agent called the NFL’s decision ludicrous, but when you figure agents get, what 10%… Brady set to make $7 million in 2015…. well, who can blame him to aggressively defending his client. There should be more reaction by morning. Still no word from Brady himself.
