Robert Kahne and Jazmin Smith began hosting My Old Kentucky Podcast in the fall of 2016, and have since released over 100 episodes. The show details politics and government in the commonwealth of Kentucky. In summer of 2017, MOKP grew to include a weekly newsletter. Robert and Jazmin are both progressive people, but they strives to give an even handed treatment to all issues. MOKP typically includes a guest appearance, and several of the most important figures in Kentucky have appeared on the show or written for the newsletter.
This week, Jazmin runs down Daniel Cameron's lawsuit against Andy Beshear's COVID-19 restrictions and the religious arguments he has been making. Plus, criminal justice quick hits, and talk about some pieces of journalism they've been reading lately.
This week, we discuss new COVID restrictions by Gov. Beshear, and the SCOKY case. Also, we discussed Colmon Elridge becoming KDP chair – the first Black person to hold that title. The interview is with Rep. Buddy Wheatley.
