Let's Make a Deal: Brexit, Syria Ceasefire, Auto Worker Strike
With just days to go before a Brexit deadline, UK and EU leaders shook hands on a new withdrawal agreement today. But that hardly means a Halloween Brexit is guaranteed.

Meanwhile, US pressure on Turkey to halt fighting in Syria appeared to pay off today, as Turkey agreed to a ceasefire to spare US-allied Kurdish fighters. Also on today’s show: how a picket line update could affect you, and something that happened in Vegas that maybe shouldn’t stay there.
Getting Involved: Russia in Turkey, Hong Kong Solidarity, and Good Samaritans
New Vocab: Impeachment Latin, El Chapito, All-Female Spacewalks
