On this week's podcast:

The upcoming Nevada primaries will be the first in the presidential campaigns to highlight the influence of the Latino vote. Antonio Gonzalez, president of the Southwest Voter Registration Education Project (SVREP), and Thomas A. Saenz, president of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund (MALDEF), join us to discuss the issues that will influence Latinos at the polls.

Rev. Jim Wallis has long been at the forefront of progressive theological thought in this nation. The prominent author, speaker and founder of the Christian organization Sojourners has written 12 books, including two New York Times bestsellers. His latest is “America’s Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege, and the Bridge to a New America.” Wallis joins us for a look at the impact of race on the presidential election campaigns.

Back in the early 1970s, the band Santana released its third studio album, appropriately titled “Santana III.” It was the final album recorded by the Woodstock-era members of the band – until now. Carlos Santana is reuniting with his old bandmates for “Santana IV,” their first studio album in 45 years. He joins us for his first interview since announcing the project.
