Welcome to In The News. We are a free political podcast that covers politics, culture and current events. We don't cover political news from the point of view of liberal or conservative, Republican or Democratic ideologies. Rather we are a source of political news and commentary from the Independent point of view. We aim to educate listeners on the issues of the day by giving background on the topics and explaining how the political debate of the nation stands to impact our daily lives.

Donald Trump has been one of the most vocal supporters of the birther movement for the better part of 5 years. So it came as quite a shock to some when he announced, suddenly, that he believes President Obama was, in fact, born in the United States. Was there a political motive to the reversal? We dissect the birtherism question and discuss the possible fall out of the announcement in this episode.

Politicians rarely come out and state they’re changing their mind on an issue. If you’re a presidential candidate you usually have your surrogates take the message out to the press and the public. In recent weeks we’ve been hearing a lot from Trump campaign surrogates about a change in policy on immigration. What exactly are the changes and is it possible that there’s more danger in Trump backpedaling at this point than in sticking with his original positions? We discuss in today’s episode.

Walter Cronkite, perhaps the most revered news anchor the country has ever had, once said that the job of a journalist is to hold up a mirror to society. Have journalists today gone too far in blurring the line between facts and opinions? In today’s episode we discuss recent examples of news outlets becoming part of the stories instead of just “holding up the mirror” and reporting on them.

Health care in the US is a $3 trillion a year business. The US spends more on health care per person than any other developed nation in the world. One of the biggest problems with healthcare in the US is the high price of medication and treatment which drug companies often hike up without warning or justification. In this episode we detail the astronomical price increases of the Epipen and discuss whether we are doing things in the best way in this country.

The Founding Fathers established the Electoral College to create a buffer between the general public and the choice for President. The main strategy for a presidential campaign is not to get the most votes but the most Electoral College votes. That results in campaigns targeting states with the most Electoral College votes instead of a broad strategy that pursues the most votes. Is this what the Founders had in mind?

How does the Electoral College work and does it still serve democracy in the best way? We discuss in today’s episode.

Currency manipulation has been a big problem between China and the rest of the world for a couple of decades. It’s no secret why China does it, but is there a bigger question to be raised in terms of China’s economic strategy as well as our own? In this episode we answer the questions, what is currency manipulation, and how does fit in with China’s overall global economic strategy?

Donald Trump has had about as bad a two weeks as a politician can possibly have. And yet he is still very much in this race. We discuss why that may be a worrisome sign for Democrats. We also discuss why some of Donald Trump’s positions may be resonating more than many believe and why his biggest mistake may have been not running as a Democrat.

According to the World Bank, water shortages are going to deliver a “severe hit” to the economies of regions all over the world by the middle of this century. It’s believed that these shortages are going to spur massive migration and even regional armed conflict. Water is the most abundant natural element on earth and yet is growing scarcer year after year. What do the Flint Water Crisis and these findings by the World Bank tell us about the value of safe drinking water and the need to preserve it? We answer in today’s episode.

Hillary Clinton’s long march to the nomination ended this week when she became her party’s official candidate for President. The scrutiny that she has had to endure from the media has been extraordinary in the 30 plus years that she has been in public life. Has it all been justified? Are there clues in the words and actions of those she has worked most closely with, in both parties, which give us a glimpse into what a Clinton presidency would really be like? We explore in today’s episode.
