This week on the program: 

  • It’s a new year, and we have a new defense secretary. Parts of the U.S. government are shut down over the border wall President Trump promised in his election campaign. 
  • The bottom line up front: This does not appear to be a time of order or coherence in the White House. There are lots of posts filled by folks in acting roles, including the Pentagon’s top job.  
  • We’ll go over the new SecDef (beginning at the 2:43 mark), the shutdown (15:36), and more with Executive Editor Kevin Baron, Tech Editor Patrick Tucker, Global Business Editor Marcus Weisgerber, and Government Executive’s Eric Katz. // Music by Terry Devine-King via AudioNetwork.com.
