What’s the correlation between the U.S. Census and your wallet? Billions of tax dollars may be a stake, and a haphazard count may threaten your voice in Congress. New York State Assemblyman Marcos Crespo is here to share his insights. Actor Alec Baldwin and satirist Kurt Andersen offer a political satire of President Trump’s first year in office in their New York Times best-selling parody memoir. Andersen, who is also host of the Peabody Award winning radio show Studio 360, joins us to talk about the book. Located in Midtown Manhattan, Grand Central Terminal is a historic, world-famous landmark. Sam Roberts, New York Times urban affairs correspondent, gives us a look inside the transportation hub that changed the nation.

Aired on December 28, 2017, July 6, 2018 and August 17, 2018.
