This week, Jazmin and Robert interviewed Derek Penwell, who announced a run for Kentucky House in District 36 last year. Now, it looks like he will run in District 31. They talked about his race so far, and his role as a pastor running for office.

Jazmin and Robert talked about the candidacy of Adrian Wallace, who is running for Lexington Mayor, and updated the news about the session so far. And, a COVID update.
