Native host Briana Kurtz is asking a tough question today: what the hell is going on in Turkey? Brooklyn College Louis Fishman is in studio today for a thorough discussion on the upcoming Turkish election in which Turkish voters return to a new round of elections, following the failure of the religious conservative AKP to form a coalition government with the secular-orientated CHP, the nationalist MHP, or the mostly-Kurdish leftist HDP.  After the break, Briana and Louis unpack the current events occurring in Syria, and talk what is next for this troubled area.
