Episode 71: Poll Position

36 minutes

2/27/2019--Jenn and Steve are back in the bunker, and one of them has a spooky secret to share. Plus, they're eager to tear open their first-ever mailbag and read your #mapoli comments, questions and concerns in a segment they've dubbed--what else?--The Pony Express.

But first, it's time to talk polls. Steve and Jenn chat through the recent round of national and New Hampshire polls centered on the announced 2020 presidential candidates.

They're joined next by someone who supersedes the 'friend of the pod' title and instead carries 'BFF of the pod' status. State House News Service reporter Katie Lannan breaks down the Musical Chairs-esque shuffle that has been House and Senate committee assignments and reassignments.

Next, the hosts sit down with Cannabis Control Commissioner Shaleen Title, who lays out the Commission's goal of establishing equal opportunity for all who want to break into the marijuana dispensary business.
