Episode 92: Don't Take Debate

35 minutes

7/31/19-- Today on the podcast, Jenn and Steve unpack a mysterious phone survey facing off Rep. Joe Kennedy III and Sen. Ed Markey. It's unclear who sponsored it, but it does raise questions about if or when Kennedy may run for Senate. And, brace yourselves, but it's come to the hosts' attention that the legislature has not reauthorized horse racing and simulcasting. If no action is taken by tomorrow, the sport will be deemed illegal.

We are officially three debates deep into the Democratic primary, and Steve and Jenn are champing at the bit to discuss it the most recent. Joining them is Alex Goldstein, an alumnus of Deval Patrick's gubernatorial campaign and more recently, Ayanna Pressley's congressional campaign. This Dean of Debates lays out his analysis of the verbal joust, pointing out who made smart moves and who...didn't.

Finally, the conversation takes a turn for the green as Steve and Jenn welcome the policy & partnerships manager at the Climate Action Business Association, Tim Cronin. Cronin breaks down what legislation is being put forth at the state level to address climate change and answers the question, are we doing enough, quickly enough? Will Massachusetts get its very own Green New Deal?
