While the White House has expressed that they’d like to work with Congress on securing a deal for the border wall, there have also been questions about whether or not they need the full support of Congress to make it happen. We talk with a reporter about the legality of the situation. We also hear from the author of a new book who says anxiety is a major part of grieving for many people and deserves to be recognized as so.

  • The Connection Between Anxiety And Grief

    The loss of a loved one can launch a person into grief, and there’s often a lot of conversation over what to expect during the grieving process. We talk to a guest therapist who says that discussions about anxiety are sometimes missing in those conversations, and joins us to explore how grief anxiety affects us and offer coping strategies.

  • Can President Trump Build The Wall Without Congress?

    The White House says it prefers to work with Congress to secure the $5.7 billion for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. However, it insists that declaring a national emergency and bypassing lawmakers is “on the table.” We discuss how that option would work, including potential legal issues, the amount of funding it could provide and who would actually build it.
