    I didn't get a chance to watch this live Labor Day Sunday, but in-depth is one of the best shows on TV. I've only watched a bit of it, but it is so refreshing to hear an unbiased conversation about our nation's beginnings. Listen if you get the time. Rebroadcast Saturday, September 11th at 9am.
