Bridging divided America

America?s turbulent 2020 election has highlighted how divided the United States is.

They?re joined by veteran civil rights leader Reverend Al Sharpton and former Governor of Ohio John Kasich.

What do women voters want?

Women will play a critical role in who wins the U.S. presidential election. Pollsters are keeping a close eye on this important voting bloc, and there is data to suggest that no nominee for either party has ever garnered as much female support as the Democratic nominee, Joe Biden. So what do women voters want? Katty and Carlos are joined by Carrie Lukas, president of the conservative-leaning Independent Women?s Forum, and Christian Nunes, president of the National Organisation for Women, a feminist activist group founded in the 1960s.

America in the world

This week, Katty Kay and Carlos Watson turn their attention to American foreign policy. The Trump administration made radical changes to the United States? role on the world stage with its America First doctrine. Some say he spoke truth to power; others lament the upending of norms which guided international relations for decades. Katty and Carlos are joined by former UN Ambassador and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Samantha Power, and American Enterprise Institute senior fellow Danielle Pletka, to ask if historians will look on the Trump administration more favourably in the future than in the present, and what a possible Biden presidency might mean for America?s relationships around the world.

America?s economic divide

Katty and Carlos discuss America?s economy and why one of the world?s wealthiest countries is home to such extremes of inequality and poverty. They are joined by Stephanie Kelton, a senior economic adviser to Bernie Sanders, and Professor of Economics and Public Policy at Stony Brook University in New York. Stephanie is a proponent of modern monetary theory (MMT), an economic school of thought that?s gaining popularity with some American thinkers and politicians. She argues that MMT could help America to build a bigger social safety net. Also joining the discussion is Teva Sienicki, CEO of Metro Caring, a non-profit organisation in Denver that serves 75,000 people per year. Teva shares the difficult stories of some of the people her charity helps, and reflects upon whether the ideal of the American Dream has contributed to the widespread belief that poverty is solely the fault of the poor. Editor: Penny Murphy Produced by Sandra Kanthal, Viv Jones, Iyore Odighizuwa, Maeve McGoran and Jonelle Awomoyi, with reporting from Suzanne Kianpour Mixed by Nigel Appleton
