It was a frenzied week in Chapel Hill, where UNC-Chapel Hill Chancellor Carol Folt announced her resignation, and at the same time authorized the removal of what remained of the Silent Sam Confederate monument.

Becki Gray and Rob Schofield discussed Folt's move, and the reaction from the UNC Board of Governors. Other topics in this week's conversation include changes to standardized tests, and a partial government shutdown that will soon enter its fifth week.
