Good episode? Give it some love!
McKay, who wrote and directed 'The Big Short' about the 2008 financial collapse, has a new comedy that draws on investigative journalism. 'Vice' charts Dick Cheney's rise from Yale dropout to vice president and "operator" behind George W. Bush. "He's always kind of just been in the background. So I had to bring him to the foreground," McKay says. 'Vice' is nominated for six Golden Globes.

Also, linguist Geoff Nunberg explains a communication breakdown at the Mexican border between border agents and asylum seekers
