Award-winning journalist Coy Barefoot interviews Andy Block, Director of the Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice about an historic sweeping overhaul to the system of justice for young people in Virginia—proposed changes that many say are long overdue. Coy also talks with the University of Virginia’s David Leblang about how we might make sense of the migrant and refugee crisis in Europe, as well as the political debate about immigration to America.
