Jazmin and Robert interviewed Keturah Herron in this episode. Ms. Herron is running for two offices at the same time: she's the Democratic candidate in the special election being held on Feb. 22 (In House District 42) and she is the Democratic candidate for the general election in the new House District 42. We spoke to her about why she wanted to run for office, and what she hopes to accomplish while she is there.

Before the interview, Robert and Jazmin talked about a bill targeting "porch pirates", which creates a new felony, and the proposed new rules for how the legislature might call itself back into session.
