The NPR Politics Podcast is headed to Cleveland for a live show at Playhouse Square, so what better time to talk about national politics on The Sound of Ideas? Scott Detrow, the Congressional correspondent who hosts the NPR Politics Podcast, will join us and we hope you can, too. We'll cover the latest on immigration, the budget, the handling of domestic violence allegations involving White House staffers and whatever else you want to talk about. Then, The Plain Dealer found that Cleveland police failed to send hundreds of rape kits collected from sexual assault victims for testing, violating state law. Reporter Rachel Dissel joins us to talk about her investigation. Plus, a conversation with retiring pastor Kenneth Chalker of University Circle United Methodist Church. He served for more than three decades.
