10:00 AM

The Digesting Politics podcast goes live as host Brian Lehrer is joined by WNYC reporters Andrea Bernstein and Elaine Rivera for a free-flowing discussion about the chaos in Albany and other local politics. Then, an interactive review of the "Uncommon Economic Indicators" project with New York Times labor reporter Steven Greenhouse, some of our favorite contributors live in the audience, and a focused discussion on the phenomenon of "doubling up" among the working poor and homeless. The second hour commemorates the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall rebellion: Stonewall veterans share their memories of the event; Studio 360's Kurt Andersen on redesigning the gay flag and what it means today; and Democracy's Living Room explores the legacy of Stonewall and the future of the gay rights movement.
