This week, former AG and Speaker Greg Stumbo gives us advice on how to take back the state, how to run for governor, and more. Listen here!
Andy Beshear joins us to talk about the pension bill lawsuit, his relationship with Matt Bevin, and whether he's going to run for Governor in 2019.
This "Moving Kentucky Forward" podcast is with Blair Haydon, director of Emerge Kentucky. We talk about all the women running, and this fall's election.
This week's guest is Tom Fitzgerald, director of the KY Resources Council. We cover the good & the bad of this year's session, and about whether the environment matters in our elections. And, at the end, he identifies a coming threat that we are not paying enough attention to, but that needs to be on our radar.
We talk with Mary Nishimuta and Ben Self of the KDP about the primaries and what they mean, as well as what KDP is doing to get ready for the fall elections. We also explore running as a progressive in Kentucky, and how KDP works with other groups to move the state forward.
Brent McKim, the head of the Jefferson County Teachers Association, joins us to talk about the proposed takeover, the upcoming contract, and what he thinks of the comments and emails that have been made public in the past few weeks.
We're joined this week by Rep. Rocky Adkins, the Democratic leader of the KY House. What did he think of the legislative session that just finished, including the way the Republicans ran it? What's going to happen this fall? And, we're going to ask him if he's running for governor.
People who make a living through working, and not stocks, have been under attack for years, even decades. It's a #WarOnWorkersKY, and it's time for us to call it what it is: an ongoing, blatant attempt to have working families make do with less and less, while the wealthy get more and more.
