This edition: Dear Abby for Politicos and Subway Spelunking

Episode Details

Original tape date: September 10, 2012.

First aired: September 12, 2012.

First up, “Debate This” considers issues that somehow are off the campaign radar. This week, we discuss toxic chemicals with Environmental Working Group director of government affairs Jason Rano. Then, we’ll meet recovering politician Jeffrey Smith who is now writing a cautionary Dear Abby-like column aimed at New York politicos and their spouses. After that, we’ll speak with Public Knowledge president Gigi Sohn to hear how each political platform shakes out on internet freedoms. Finally, we go spelunking -- not upstate, but under Grand Central, with LTVSquad's Ed Ruggiero.
