Listen 00:48:44

Guests: Juana Summers, Matt Kerbel

Barack Obama delivered his final State of the Union address on Tuesday night. This speech comes after a year of domestic and international tumult including continued mass shootings, increased tensions between police and their communities, attacks by ISIS, not to mention his ongoing battles with the Republican-led congress. Today, we’ll discuss the address, the GOP response from South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, as well as what to expect from the President’s last year in office. We’re joined by JUANA SUMMERS, political editor at Mashable, and by MATT KERBEL, professor and chair of the political science department at Villanova University.
