Skimm This: Gun Control, The Bahamas, and #MeToo

It’s September 13th. Today, we Skimm’d This: 

  • Ten Democratic presidential candidates took the stage for the third primary debate last night, and one issue stood out: gun control. We’ll connect the dots on which proposals are being put forward, and whether they have support from the American public. 

  • The Bahamas is still reeling from Hurricane Dorian, and now a new storm could complicate recovery efforts. We’ll explain. 

  • New York Times journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey visited Skimm HQ today to discuss their new book about their investigation into allegations against Harvey Weinstein. We’ve got a clip from the interview.

  • And finally: there’s a word for that feeling you may be having today on Friday the 13th.


theSkimm: The top ten Democrats in the presidential primary faced off last night for their third debate, and three big ideas emerged from their conversation on gun control. We’ll break them down for you. Meanwhile, the Bahamas is still recovering from Hurricane Dorian, and now they’re preparing for a new potential storm. Also on today’s show: two reporters whose work helped kickstart the #MeToo movement, and why some people aren’t saying ‘TGIF’ today.
