Hilary Clinton and Bernie Sanders reported their most recent fundraising numbers last week. Martin O’Malley hasn’t released his numbers yet, but he did voice support for Congressman John Sarbanes’ legislation that would reform how campaigns are financed. The Congressman joins us this morning with an update on the status of his bill.

Then a conversation with the poet Lia Purpura about her new collection of poems, It Should Have Been Beautiful, and Leon Panetta, the 8-term California Congressman who went on to serve as Chief of Staff and the Director of the CIA in the Clinton Administration, talks about foreign policy in the age of ISIS.

And – The Single Carrot Theatre is taking part in the Womens Voices Theater Festival. Theater critic J Wynn Rousuck has a review of the premiere of “Phoebe in Winter.”
