Today on The Current:

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau revealed his new federal cabinet on Tuesday. Matt Galloway discusses the work that lies ahead of them with our national affairs panel of political veterans: former Conservative MP Lisa Raitt; former NDP MP Libby Davies; and former Liberal MP Catherine McKenna. 

Plus, when Winnipeg journalist Ryan Thorpe got a tip about a white supremacist group in his city, it led him to go undercover. His story of infiltrating neo-Nazi group The Base is part of the new CBC podcast White Hot Hate, which is hosted by veteran national security reporter Michelle Shephard. They tell us what they discovered about the scale and depth of far-right extremism in Canada.

And Indra Nooyi became the first South Asian woman to lead a Fortune 500 company when she was named CEO of PepsiCo in 2006. She tells us about that journey, her new memoir My Life in Full: Work, Family, and Our Future and the challenges women continue to face in the workplace.
