This week we welcomed Mae Suramek, Democratic candidate for the 89th district in Madison, Jackson, and Laurel counties to the show. This district has a special election in a few weeks, and we spoke to her about her campaign and why she wants to serve in Frankfort.

In addition, Robert and Jazmin discuss COVID and a report about Andy Beshear's commutations for some Kentuckians at the beginning of the COVID crisis. Plus, a healthy amount of Quick Hits.
