How Will the Election and Aftermath Go? (with Rahm Emanuel)
Who will win? How is it likely to happen? What matters in the last two weeks? What would a contested election and a transition look like? And how would that affect the management of the pandemic? Andy calls the one political expert who can help answer these questions: Rahm Emanuel, the former mayor of Chicago and President Obama's first chief of staff. Hear the inside baseball and see who needs a hug after this.
