Joining Kai to talk about the week’s business and economic news are Sudeep Reddy  from the Wall Street Journal and the Washington Post’s Catherine Rampell. The big topics this week: the U.S. gross domestic product experiences a slowdown during the year’s first quarter, the Federal Reserve holds a two-day meeting and Greece continues to have a tenuous relationship with the eurozone.
