Podcast for America is your inside look at the increasingly incomprehensible but decidedly riveting drama that is a presidential campaign cycle. Your hosts are Annie Lowrey of New York magazine, Alex Wagner of MSNBC, and Mark Leibovich, national correspondent for the New York Times Magazine.

This week, we’re coming to you live from Politicon in Los Angeles!

First off, we talk to journalist John Heilemann about the increasing drama within the Grand Ole Party. With Jon Boehner parachuting out of the House and McCarthy’s surprise ditch, what does the future hold for Republicans?

Next, we talk with the one and only James Carville, lead strategist on Bill Clinton’s 1992 campaign, about the state of Hillary Clinton’s run.  

And lastly, we chat with political speechwriter Jon Favreau about Donald Trump’s latest speech, delivered at the Treasure Island Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas—an over-the-top location for an over-the-top man.
