The Democrats Descend on Hollywood

(Starts at :45)

The entertainment industry has long been a font of financing for Democratic presidential hopefuls, and the 2020 candidates are starting to make the rounds in Hollywood. But with 21 announced candidates, how are donors going to spread around their support? Ted Johnson, the politics editor for Variety, chats with John Horn about the dash for cash.

A man of many hats (and bandanas)

(Starts at 7:45)

Steven Van Zandt is best known as the bandana-wearing guitarist of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. He’s also known for playing mob-like characters on shows such as “The Sopranos” and “Lilyhammer.” But he’s also a songwriter, producer, activist and radio host. And he has an album of new music titled “Summer of Sorcery” — his first in 20 years. He’s also in an upcoming documentary about the New Jersey music scene called, ”Asbury Park: Riot, Redemption, Rock ’n’ Roll.” John Horn spoke with Van Zandt about his new projects and getting his band, Disciples of Soul, back together.
