Kevin O’Flaherty, director of advocacy — Northeast region for the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, and Linda Rosenthal, New York State Assemblymember (D/WF 67, representing Upper West Side and parts of Hell's Kitchen), talk about the rules, the industry and whether the FDA is going far enough to protect teens from becoming addicted.
    • Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York (D), calls in to talk about the state's deal to bring Amazon to Queens, the legislative agenda in the State Senate (since it will soon be controlled by Democrats) and more.
    • Greg Miller, national security reporter for the Washington Post and the author of The Apprentice: Trump, Russia and the Subversion of American Democracy (Custom House, 2018), lays out the full scope of Russia's attempt to undermine U.S. democracy in the 2016 election.
    • Rhonda Colvin, Washington Post video planning editor and writer, examines the travel concerns of African Americans in the United States today, and how they evoke the Green Book of the Jim Crow era.
