The Political Junkie is turning his analytical gaze west. Ken Rudin, known to NPR listeners from his many years talking all things politics with Neal Conan on "Talk of the Nation," joins Insight host Beth Ruyak for our signature segment that puts California politics in the context of the national scene. Rudin joins us from Washington D.C. in an effort to put it all in perspective.

This week, Ken Rudin discusses the continuing debate on gun laws in the wake of the Parkland shooting, the release of Adam Schiff's response to the Devin Nunes memo, and the latest in the Mueller investigation.
