Connecticut 4th district Congressman Jim Himes joins us to talk about what happened at the U.S Capitol and how the country moves forward from here. 

And later, we hear about efforts to pass recreational marijuana in our state. We also hear how the state might expunge the records of those with previous marijuana drug convictions, as well as hearing from marijuana cultivators themselves. What does the business of marijuana look like?

We want to hear from you.
