We discuss the news and more politics storylines from the week with Bloomberg White House correspondent Toluse Olorunnipa and Chad Pergram of Fox News. Also, whether it's for breakfast, lunch or dinner, have you noticed avocados popping up on menus a lot lately? Resident chef Kathy Gunst has, and joins host Jeremy Hobson with a few of her favorite recipes using them. And there's a shortage of psychiatrists across the country, especially in rural areas, at a time when there are calls to improve mental health care. Dr. Darrell Kirch, president and CEO of the Association of American Medical Colleges, tells us more about the implications.
