The Takeout is a weekly show about politics, policy and pop culture hosted by CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett. Listeners can expect context and analysis of the week’s political news in a casual format that allows for expanded conversation with a newsmaker. Each episode is recorded over a meal at a Washington, D.C. restaurant.
Join us for lunch at The Purple Pig in downtown Chicago for a conversation with gun safety advocate Shannon Watts, founder of Mom's Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and author of the new book "Fight Like a Mother." Watts explains how a Facebook post led to a national network of grassroots activists and why changes to state gun laws are having an impact in the face of congressional inaction.
