Episode 234: The Bird App

39 minutes

11/3/22-- This week on The Horse Race, Lisa and Jenn are easing out of spooky season and into more T drama. Steve Poftak, current general manager of the MBTA, will be stepping down on January 3, only two days before a new governor will take office.

Later in the show, the team sets the stage for election day with the help of Yawu Miller of the Bay State Banner. From the top of the ticket, to down ballot races, we run through what to watch in the upcoming week.

Then Chris Oates, founder of Legislata, drops by the pod to talk Twitter. He's done research into the purpose of the app in the political sphere and who uses #mapoli (and how it's pronounced).

Don't forget to listen to our ballot question rundown episodes if you haven't voted yet!
