  The following is a list of past specials you may have heard.

Airs Sunday, June 17, 2018, at 6 p.m. Will all of the recent goodwill gestures between North and South Korea lead to the one thing Washington wants most? Can a deal be struck that denuclearizes North Korea? And what will they want in exchange for giving up that leverage? The debaters are Suzanne DiMaggio, Sue Mi Terry, Bonnie Jenkins, and Mira Rapp-Hooper.
