Mark Leibovich FEATURED SEGMENT | Live call in w/ NY Times' Mark Leibovich discussing his best-selling book THIS TOWN

Couldn't be more excited about this week's show. I'm talking with one of the surest voices in the gilded swampland of our nation's capitol, Mark Leibovich, who is the national chief political correspondent of New York Times Magazine.

His book THIS TOWN is a #1 New York Times bestseller and certainly the hottest political book of the summer. He skewers the gilded partisans on both sides of the aisle who are surprisingly bipartisan when it comes to serving their own well-paid self interests. Not a pretty picture.

Leibovich has a long career inside the Beltway, working at the Washington Post, where I first met him, before joining the Times. He also worked at the storied San Jose Mercury News before joining the Post in 1997. It's a live call in. Don't miss it.
