I joined Paul Ross of talkRADIO for a special Easter Monday edition of our weekly survey of events in the US, UK, and beyond.

The discussion begins with a look at the latest in Donald Trump’s obsession for The Wall with Mexico. Then it’s over to UK, both to look at the politics around the Labour Party and anti-semitism and to review the May Government’s latest turbulence over Brexit.

Finally, we have a look at the life of Winnie Mandela, a marker of both hope and downfall in South Africa, who died this weekend.

Listen from 10:33 in 0100-0130 Segment
