Tonight, the votes are in and we’re breaking down Governor Kathy Hochul and Congressman Lee Zeldin’s big primary wins. Gotham Gazette Executive Editor Ben Max joins us to break down the results and what’s next in the race for New York’s highest office.

As part of our Chasing the Dream initiative, Dr. Hakeem Oluseyi shares his journey from living in poverty to becoming a world-renowned astrophysicist.  His path did not come easy, as he confronted his own personal demons as well as the entrenched racism and classism in the scientific establishment.  Dr. Oluseyi’s memoir is called “A Quantum Life:  My Unlikely Journey from the Street to the Stars,” and he joins us to share how he was able to overcome the odds.
