Politics Podcast: Does Hillary Clinton’s Book Get 2016 Right?

Hillary Clinton gives her account of why she lost the 2016 presidential election in a book that’s titled “What Happened” and is coming out this week. The FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast team discusses her assessment, from the role of the “Comey letter” to the media’s coverage of her email scandal.

Plus, in the wake of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Nate talks to FiveThirtyEight’s Maggie Koerth-Baker about the link between hurricanes and climate change.
