Michael Daly of the Daily Beast discusses his reporting on the killing that shocked a city, and Christina Greer talks about her time at Columbia and why this killing drew some much more attention than others.
FAQ takes a field trip to Emma Lazarus' Sitting Room at the American Jewish Historical Society to talk with Executive Director Annie Polland about the poet's life and her legacy.

For the past year, FAQ has been asking New York's politicians the toughest questions, namely: “Are you a replicant?” The results of their Voight-Kampff tests have been a tightly held secret until now. It’s November, 2019, and the future is here and so are the tests, and results.
Albert Fox Cahn of the Surveillance Technology Oversight Project joins Chrissy, Alex and Harry to talk about police body cams, who's watching our (AI and facial recognition enhanced) watchmen, and much more.

Council Speaker Corey Johnson joins Chrissy, Harry and Alex to explain how the vote to build four new jails and the promise to close Rikers Island in 2026 fit together. Plus, he talks for the first time about his most recent visit to the Island a week ago, and much more.
