Washington Post politics reporter Dave Weigel tells you who it helps and who it hurts when a political candidate can't name a single world leader.

Also, a Seattle writer talks about why it's not a good idea to call kids "a quarter Asian."

And Seattle's most famous defense attorney, John Henry Browne, will tell you what it's like to be in a prison cell with and defend the life of Ted Bundy and other killers.

The University of Washington is back in session today. After a year of protests on American campuses, what have protesters accomplished and does it come at the cost of the exchange of ideas?

Also, How To Be A Girl is a new KUOW podcast about raising a transgender child, and really all children who insist on being who they are instead of what we expected.

And you'll meet someone who started a Feminist Fight Club at work.

Bill Radke speaks with New York Times columnist Jessica Bennett about her new book, "Feminist Fight Club." The book includes terms like “manterrupters,” “bropropriators,” “himitators” and “menstruhaters.” Bennett says she uses comedy in the book to provide other women with a manual for dealing with sexism in the workplace. 

Bill Radke speaks with local independent podcast producer Marlo Mack about how she came to accept that the child she thought was her son was actually her daughter. Mack, who goes by a pseudonym to protect her child, has joined with KUOW to collaborate on a new season of How To Be A Girl, a podcast about raising a transgender daughter.

Bill Radke speaks with writer and humorist Dave Barry about what it's like to live in a state that's relevant during presidential elections. While Hillary Clinton will almost certainly get Washington's electoral votes, Florida, per usual, is up for grabs. 

Barry, whose new book is "Best. State. Ever.: A Florida Man Defends His Homeland," tells Radke about the origins of Florida's wacky reputation (the 2000 election), what he thinks of Seattle and what we can all learn this election season from Florida's legendary electoral foibles.

We'll talk with the mayor of Burlington, the city that witnessed a mass shooting Friday.

Also, the closing of a large Seattle clinic has left thousands of prescription opiate users with no way to get their pain medication.

And why would you want to watch tonight's presidential debate with a drink in one hand and a bingo card in the other?

Bill Radke talks to Burlington Mayor Steve Sexton about how his community is coping after the shooting Friday evening at the Cascade Mall that killed five people. 

Bill Radke speaks with Seattle Times economics columnist Jon Talton about why the World Trade Organization is calling Airbus subsidies "unfair," and why it won't have much effect on Washington's Boeing employees.

Bill Radke speaks with Seattle Times health reporter JoNel Aleccia about the closure of eight locations of the Seattle Pain Center and how the former patients are turning instead to emergency rooms to treat chronic pain.
