Award-Winning documentary filmmaker Jen Senko ("The Vanishing City") joins host Dr. Cheryl Lubin to discuss her current project, "The Brainwashing of My Dad", a film that explores her father's transformation from a mild-mannered nonpolitical Kennedy democrat to a Republican when extreme right-wing talk radio and Fox News became his sole source of "information".
