2,977 people were killed by 19 al Qaeda-backed terrorists on September 11, 2001. Today, as immigration and travel bans dominate the news, we begin a several month exploration of what that day has meant for American government, agencies, policies and culture.

We start the show lightning round to cover the this week's headlines. We're also sharing our first gratitude moment, a new regular segment in our Tuesday episodes.
