As a bonus for listeners, we’re sharing the first episode of a special series from “Why Is This Happening? The Chris Hayes Podcast,” called “WITHpod 2024: The Stakes.” For the first time since 1892, we have an election in which both candidates have presidential records. It’s a unique chance to take a hard look at what both Joe Biden and Donald Trump have actually done as president. Chris Hayes talks to experts about both candidates’ records on specific policy areas. This week, Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, policy director at the American Immigration Council, joins to unpack immigration policies under Trump vs. Biden, the state of the asylum system, and more. Follow and listen to the whole series:

The before, middle, and after of MSNBC's prime time coverage an analysis from Rachel Maddow and her colleagues on one of the high holidays for U.S. democracy, the State of the Union address. 
Dear Listeners, After Super Tuesday, Rachel joined a few of her colleagues on their respective shows to discuss the state of the 2024 race. First she spoke with Nicolle Wallace on Deadline White House, and later she and Alex Wagner joined Chris Hayes on All in. Taken together the segments amount to roughly a podcast-worth of audio, so with a not-very-pretty edit we present those discussions to you here. Enjoy!
Dear Listener, It's always tricky to figure out what parts of extended TV coverage to share as a podcast. In this case, it felt like the more interesting developments came in the back end of our six hours of live coverage, so this podcast is from roughly 9:30pm ET to midnight. Enjoy!
Plus, U.S. voters face stark contrast in 2024 choices, with no 'magic wand' coming to help
Plus, Conservative anti-gay movement built on foundation of questionable credibility
Rachel Maddow and her prime time MSNBC colleagues discuss the viability of Donald Trump's candidacy as he fails to drive Nikki Haley out of the race even as he continues to win state contests.
Plus, Wisconsin dumps GOP-manipulated maps to better reflect voters' will
Plus, "Putin apologia is spreading through the GOP like a cancer." 
On Into America presents: Uncounted Millions: The Power of Reparations, award-winning MSNBC correspondent Trymaine Lee dives into one of today’s most pressing debates: reparations. Months ago, Trymaine discovered the little-known story of Gabriel Coakley and it blew his mind. In the midst of the Civil War, Coakley was among a handful of Black people who found a way to get compensated for slavery by the US government. On Uncounted Millions, Trymaine talks to Coakley’s descendants about how reparations forever changed their family’s trajectory. And as more cities and states consider the issue at a policy level, he imagines how reparations might shape the whole of Black America.  Listen to the first episode now. And follow the show:

Spectacular! A clarifying layout of the many moving pieces of immigration policy...with a refreshingly sympathetic view of every group involved.

Please stop calling him President Trump. He is no longer president. He is the Former President, just a regular citizen.

Darn it Rachel, if you're old then I'm ancient. But I don't feel old. I'm younger than the two Presidential front runners.

Netanyahu has been spoiling for a fight for decades. His problem is more than anger, it's rage, which will be incredibly difficult to contain.

Rachel. Put a top hat on Trump's mug shot. It's a rehash of USA needs YOU. It's another dog whistle! Another practice call to arms.

On listening to this episode it occurs to me that it might only be a matter of time until the GOP want to retrospectively pursue women who have abortions in their past.
