Episode 56: LIVE with the Winner's Circle

74 minutes

We're LIVE from WeWork at 1 Beacon St. bringing you the best of horse racing puns to the Post-Election Winner's Circle. Your hosts, Steve Koczela and Jennifer Smith wrap up what just happened and what we can expect next locally, state-wide, and nationally.

First we check in with Representative Katherine Clark from MA's 5th district about what we can expect now that Dems have taken the House. Then, we hear from Michelle Wu, Boston City Councilor at Large, about everything from daily transit woes to what we can expect from Senator Warren on a national level. Newly elected Suffolk District Attorney, Rachael Rollins, takes the stage to break down exactly how she plans to bring serious change to the criminal justice system. And finally, Brian Wynne, campaign manager for the Baker/Polito ticket looks behind the Republican Governor's race in the midst of MA's blue wave.

Thank you all for joining us tonight!
