The third season of the popular podcast "Conspiracyland" delves into the life and the brutal, horrific death of U.S.-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Yahoo News chief investigative correspondent Michael Isikoff, the host of "Conspiracyland," joins CBSN AM to discuss.

Jim Smith, who served as U.S. ambassador to Saudi Arabia from 2009 to 2013, joined CBSN to discuss.
