Guests: Robert Costa, George Parker

We begin today’s show by listening to Marty’s conversation with Washington Post White House reporter and host of PBS’s “Washington Week,” ROBERT COSTA, recorded at a WHYY event in front of a live audience. The two talked about his career in journalism, his first-hand interactions with the most powerful people in the country, and to get an inside look at what it’s been like being a national politics reporter in the Trump era. Then, we turn to the British election just two days away. With Brexit on the line, it’s said to be the most important election since WWII. Whichever party wins the majority of seats, will govern and decide how the UK could leave the EU. The Financial Times political editor GEORGE PARKER joins us to talk about the election, the battle between Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Labour Party’s Jeremy Corbyn, and the future of Britain.
