The Midnight Sun Podcast (February 5)

 

In our February 5 episode, Casey Reynolds and Forrest Dunbar discuss Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s decision to vote against the confirmation of Pres. Trump’s nominee for Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos before moving on to a fiery conversation about whether Rep. Dean Westlake’s bill to establish Indigenous People’s Day on the same day as Columbus Day is a good idea.

We are also joined by State Senator Mia Costello to discuss the intersection between the state budget and economy, her bill to let Uber-like companies into the Alaska market, and how crime reform legislation passed last year itself needs reform.

It is a packed show, so sit back and enjoy.
