4/7/15 Podcast Aaron K

As he planted a backpack containing a bomb near a group of children, Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev made a coldblooded decision aimed at punishing America for its wars in Muslim countries, federal prosecutor Aloke Chakravarty told the jury during closing arguments Monday at Tsarnaev’s death penalty trial. “This was a cold, calculated terrorist act. This was intentional. It was bloodthirsty.” Defense attorney Judy Clarke countered by arguing, as she did at the trial’s outset, that Tsarnaev took part in the attack but did so under the malevolent influence of his now-dead older brother, Tamerlan. The jury is expected to begin deliberations on Tuesday morning.

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.
