TONIGHT ON METROFOCUS

February 22, 2019 at 5:30 am

Sen. Alessandra Biaggi joins us to discuss the newly passed Child Victims Act, her personal story as a survivor of sexual violence, and her new role in government. Did New York City just commit the “largest unforced error in its economic history” by losing out on Amazon HQ2? We have an analysis. We’re taking a look back at Sir Ernest Shackleton’s epic Antarctic expedition, giving you a rare glimpse of the greatest photographic record of human survival.

Aired on February 21, 2019.
