The Iran Crisis: Arwa Damon, Rep. Ro Khanna, and Sen. Chris Murphy

This is a special episode of Sorry Not Sorry, focused entirely on the developing military situation in Iran. It’s such an unnecessary mess—remember that three years ago, we had a working peace and nuclear disarmament treaty with that country. Now, we’re at the brink of war. We take the time to go in-depth into the situation both historically and politically, to help us all understand what’s happening and what we can do about it. Most importantly, we examine the human cost of generations of conflict and war in the region. CNN Senior International Correspondent Arwa Damon joins the show from Istanbul, and Senator Chris Murphy and Congressman Ro Khanna join from Washington. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alyssa-milano-sorry-not-sorry/message

The Student Debt Crisis with Natalia Abrams

The great promise of success in America has been this: work hard, get an education, and there’s nothing you can’t do. That promise is no longer being kept for far too many of us. Student loan debt is eating away so much of our disposable income, keeping us from buying homes, starting families, and starting businesses. We’re now living in a nation with more than a trillion dollars in student loan debt—and much of that debt cannot be refinanced or even cleared via bankruptcy. Our guest Natalia Abrams is the Executive Director of Student Debt Crisis, where she advocates for student debt reform, affordable education, and smart lending solutions for everyone pursuing a degree. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/alyssa-milano-sorry-not-sorry/message
