U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu joins us in studio this morning as the day's first guest to talk with Jim about her bid for a fourth term in the Senate. She discusses how she feels confident in running against U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, citing "experience" as the key difference between the them. When asked about what she thinks concerning Rep. Bill Cassidy running a seemingly quiet campaign so far, Landrieu said, "If I had a record like his, I might hide too." She expresses her support of American military campaigns against ISIS, laughs about Republican attacks on her official residency status, discusses her stance on corporation rights (believing that they are not entitled to equal speech), and talks about her experience on Saturday at the LSU football game where she was photographed helping a student do a keg stand. She's closes out her discussion with Jim by predicting a victory over Rep. Bill Cassidy come November 3rd.
Also, Author David Rose joins us over the phone to end today's show and promote his latest book "Enchanted Objects." David is a media lab scientist at MIT, and in his book he shows us a future world with technology embedded within almost every single everyday item you can think of, i.e.: salt shakers with cameras that photograph your food to keep watch of your diet, umbrellas that will tell you when it's going to rain, and much more. He's already been a part of a team with Amazon that's created a prototype garbage can that can order food.
