6/26/2019-- Steve and Jenn are back in The Last Remaining Signal Bungalow in Boston, and first on the discussion topic list: debates. This week, 2 groups of Democratic presidential candidates, each group on their own night, will square off in a verbal jousting match. Steve and Jenn discuss how polls can move in response to primary debates.

Later, Andy Metzger, AKA Duke of Derailments and Master of MBTA Coverage joins the hosts to share Governor Baker's most recent comments regarding the state of the MBTA and what's being done to make improvements to the transit system that is rife with derailments, delays, and in one case, flames on the tracks.

Finally, writer for The Springfield Republican and MassLive.com Shira Schoenberg, explains the complex debate on Beacon Hill surrounding drug pricing, and whether consumers can expect to see sky-high drug prices come down any time soon.
