This week on the show, Rep. McKenzie Cantrell joins us to talk about her work to reform Kentucky’s Unemployment Insurance system in the wake of the pandemic. She walks us through the changes she’s seeking to make, and her attempts to get the Republican majority to take up this issue.

Robert and Jazmin also discuss two bills from Robert Stivers which specifically impact Black people in Louisville – his no-knock warrant ban, and a TIF district he wants to establish in west Louisville. Other segments include the End of Impeachment, an update on the COVID-19 lawsuits, and the state of COVID in Kentucky.
