This week we have *two* guests who are parts of Kentucky's labor movement: Caitlin Blair, the Communications Director for UFCW Local 227, and Jay Dennis of Teamsters Local 89. We spoke with Caitlin about the current state of the labor movement in Kentucky, and how the labor movement works within Louisville and Kentucky currently. With Jay, we spoke about current ongoing actions, including an active strike within Teamsters 89 in a company right across the bridge from Louisville. We were thrilled to learn more about the current and future state of the labor union movement here in Kentucky.

Before the interviews, Robert and Jazmin updated a couple of policing stories we have been tracking and discussed a report that Rocky Adkins might be considering a run for Secretary of Agriculture.
