The Weeds: Immigration and the minimum wage — with an armed standoff in between

This week on The Weeds, special guest star Dara Lind joins Sarah Kliff and me to teach a clinic on immigration policy. Next we delve into the ongoing standoff in Oregon, where some historical information actually gets me to change my mind. Then we look at a new empirical paper on the minimum wage's role during the Great Recession that offers a window into exactly how hard it is to change minds.

As always, you can subscribe to The Weeds on iTunes, rate us there, and reach out with feedback at Next week, Ezra should be back from his adventures in scenic Las Vegas, so you'll have your regular Weeds cast back.
