With Washington abuzz over the political ramifications of the president's trip to Afghanistan, this week's podcast focuses on stuff outside the Beltway: Sen. Dick Lugar's tough Republican primary contest in Indiana next Tuesday and, on the same day, Wisconsin Democrats' selection of a candidate to take on GOP Gov. Scott Walker in the June recall election.

NPR's Ron Elving and Ken Rudin break down the latest political news on this week's roundup.
