On this week's Washington Week:

  • The Week In Politics: President Joe Biden & House Speaker Kevin McCarthy meet for the first time to try and prevent a default on the nation’s debt. The 2024 Republican race for president widens. And, there’s more scrutiny into the president’s handling of sensitive documents, as the FBI searches Mr. Biden’s Delaware vacation home.
  • Police Reform: As mourners gathered for Tyre Nichols’ funeral this week, many pledged to continue the fight for police reform, and renewed the call for passage of the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act after the last bipartisan talks failed in 2021.

Joining moderator Yamiche Alcindor to discuss this and more:

  • Ayesha Rascoe, Host of NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday and Up First Saturdays.
  • Michael Shear, White House correspondent for the New York Times.
  • Susan Page, Washington Bureau chief for USA TODAY

Major funding for “Washington Week” is provided by Consumer Cellular, the estate of Arnold Adams, the Yuen Foundation, Sandra and Carl DeLay-Magnuson, Rose Hirschel and Andy Shreeves, Robert and Susan Rosenbaum, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and PBS.
