Ep. 87 Real talk about refugees

Pull up a chair, and we'll pour you some tea. A recent Executive Order from President Trump has the world talking about the United States and refugees. This week, Megan asked Kelly to help her sit down and sort through the news, identifying facts, gathering some expert opinions, and listening to the stories of people close to the situation. It's a super-sized episode of Sorta Awesome (and they still didn't even come close to covering it all!), and of course, you'll hear their Awesomes of the Week!
