On this week’s podcast, we interview Mashayla Hays and Jackie McGranahan of the ACLU about abortion rights in Kentucky. Robert and Jazmin talk about the Kentuckians who vace charges for their participation in the insurrection at the Capitol. And, Robert looks at the bills with the highest level of Democratic sponsorship and what the legislative session would look like if Democrats were in charge.
This week – Governor Beshear! Topics: his first year; deciding to run for office; his approach to COVID-19; the investigation into Breonna Taylor’s killing; and his relationship to the legislature. We also discussed KYGA21 with Bruce Maples, including the bills that have already passed, the budget, and the GOP’s impeachment committee.
This week, Jazmin and Robert talk about the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic. Robert also went through a report by KY Policy about the one-year budget the legislature must pass, and Jazmin updated the policing and protests situation in Louisville. Then, they interview Democratic House Whip Angie Hatton, who talked about Democrats in Appalachia and the difficulties faced by Democrats running outside of urban areas.
