  • U.S. President Donald Trump called for unity in his state of the union address Tuesday, but one analyst says he also managed to undermine his own message of bipartisan co-operation.
  • Roger McNamee was an early adopter of Facebook, and an early believer. While he was once even an adviser to founder Mark Zuckerberg, today McNamee is one of the tech giant's fiercest critics. He speaks to host Anna Maria Tremonti about his new book Zucked: Waking up to the Facebook Catastrophe.
  • Fourteen years ago, Kerri Rawson found out her father was a notorious serial killer, the so-called BTK killer.
