Co-hosts Jake Potter and Stephanie Hawco sit down with Kyle McLaughlin, senior vice president of operations at CLEAR, to learn about how the service works and why flyers are so eager to sign up. Meanwhile, Jake and Stephanie tackle all the new airlines and routes coming to RDU this spring, and do a little international trip planning.
