In a 232-196 party line-vote, the House has approved rules for the Trump impeachment inquiry. The rules lay out how the House Intelligence Committee, who is currently leading the investigation will transition to public hearings. They will release a report of their findings and also release transcripts of closed-door testimony. Mike Lillis, congressional reporter at The Hill, joins us for the latest step in the impeachment inquiry.


Next, one of the biggest events in horse racing happens this weekend as Santa Anita Racetrack hosts the Breeders’ Cup. Santa Anita itself has been under tons of scrutiny for 36 horse deaths since last December, and while there are many factors that can contribute to a horse injury, one of the few factors we can control is the quality of dirt tracks. Lexi Pandell, contributor to Wired, joins us for the super-optimized dirt that helps keep horses safe.
