One of my favorite interviews of the past year was with Daniel Radcliffe, who starred as Harry Potter in every one of the eight films until he got too old, and the lightning scar got all wrinkly.

In just a minute - since last week, we asked our panelists to predict how Scaramucci would get in trouble and get fired and he was fired, this week, we're going to ask our panelists to predict what will make Trump turn on his new chief of staff, John Kelly, and fire him.

PETER SAGAL, HOST:

If there's one thing that brings all of Chicago together, it's agreeing that deep dish pizza is a horrible joke played on tourists. Right after that, it's the Cubs. For our show in Chicago's Millennium Park, we invited Ryan Dempster, former Cubs pitcher, to play our game.

Dempster played for the Cubs for nine seasons before he left to win a World Series with the Boston Red Sox in 2013. He had so much fun he called up his friends back in Chicago and said, "Hey, you guys should try this!" He's now a special adviser to the Cubs and an analyst for MLB network.
