Guiding you on this journey every week are your hosts—Mark Leibovich of the New York Times Magazine and author of This Town; Annie Lowrey of New York magazine; and Alex Wagner, host of Now With Alex Wagner on MSNBC.

On today’s episode they decide whether Bernie-mentum is certifiably a real thing yet.

And they examine a battle in the culture wars that, believe it or not, the Republicans are currently losing.
