It’s a busy week in politics. The presidential primary season kicked off in Iowa, and tonight is the President’s State of the Union Address. Meanwhile, the impeachment trial nears its end. This hour, Southern Connecticut State University political scientist Jennifer Hopper joins us.
And later, what do you know about the new coronavirus? There are now 11 confirmed cases in the US including in Massachusetts.
We talk with a journalist who has reported on the outbreak from China, the center of the epidemic. What questions do you have about coronavirus? Are you more concerned about catching the flu?
