- Before he teamed up with Donald Trump, Republican vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence had a history as a conservative talk radio host in which he often slammed officials caught in cheating scandals. We play an excerpt from his show and speak with Politico reporter Darren Samuelsohn, who reported on the show in his recent article, "The Old Cassettes That Explain Mike Pence." We also speak with Jeff Sharlet, associate professor of literary journalism at Dartmouth and author of the book "C Street: The Fundamentalist Threat to American Democracy."
