Fridays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 10 a.m. on KPBS TV + PBS Video App

WASHINGTON WEEK, PBS' longest-running public affairs series, features Washington's top journalists analyzing the week's top news stories and their effect on the lives of all Americans. Join a robust roundtable discussion with award-winning journalists who provide reporting and analysis of the major stories emanating from the nation’s capital.

Topics for May 13 + May 15:

  • The U.S. hits a tragic new milestone in the Coronavirus pandemic – 1 million American deaths. And it comes amid a new warning of an upcoming surge in infections and a battle that’s now underway on Capitol Hill over President Biden’s request for billions of dollars in new funding for testing, vaccines, and treatment.
  • The fallout from the leak of the Supreme Court’s draft abortion decision continued this week. With the issue shaping up to play a role in this year’s midterm elections, the Senate vote aimed at codifying a women’s right to an abortion failed to pass and protests took place outside the homes of some Supreme Court justices.

Joining moderator Yamiche Alcindor to discuss this and more:

  • Seung Min Kim, White House Correspondent for The Washington Post
  • Susan Page, Washington Bureau Chief for USA Today
  • Manu Raju, Congressional Correspondent for CNN

And on the Washington Week Extra, Yamiche and her panelists will talk about the economy.

And don’t forget you can follow WASHINGTON WEEK on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter to keep up with daily developments. Past episodes of WASHINGTON WEEK are available on demand.
