On Thursday, New York Democrats will pick their nominees for state office. Can actress Cynthia Nixon unseat Gov. Andrew Cuomo and become the next gubernatorial candidate? Plus, the nine other races that could shake up our state. Our friends at Viceland take us deep into our “Dopesick Nation” with two recovering addicts who are now trying to save one addict at a time. The musical that became an internet sensation is headed to Broadway. We have the buzz about “Be More Chill.”

Aired on September 12, 2018.
