The Scramble: Frank Rich, The Underground Railroad and The Oscars

Feb 27, 2017

Culture icon Frank Rich joins Colin to talk about the subtle, or not-so-subtle war for our culture, from Trump's promise to avoid the White House Correspondents' Dinner to last night's Academy Awards. 

Also this hour: You probably learned about Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad in your grade school history class. It was one of those moments when you marveled at the resilience of the human spirit as you mourned the devastating losses. We should never forget that period of history as painful as it is to remember. How alarming is it that houses of worship across the U.S. feel the need to bring back the Underground Railroad to protect vulnerable immigrants?

Lastly, we take your calls. Surely, you have something on your mind.
