One of the many testy exchanges of the first 2016 presidential debate came on the topic of trade. Republican nominee Donald Trump accused his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, of supporting the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the massive trade deal covering a dozen Pacific Rim countries.

On today's show, we'll look back at last night's presidential debate, which included mentions of Hillary Clinton's email controversy and Trump's tax returns; where Clinton stands on trade deals; and a study that finds women lag behind men when it comes to getting promotions. 

It's well known that Dear Leader was crazy about movies. What's less known — at least in the West — is that infamous North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il was so crazy about them that he kidnapped a South Korean actress and a movie director in 1978 and forced them to work for him for years.
