It’s a big show this week. On our May 7 episode of Alaska’s most listened to political podcast, Casey Reynolds and Forrest Dunbar are joined by Rep. Chuck Kopp to discuss some issues he is working on involving Alaska Railroad right of ways and restitution funds for crime victims. It is a pretty great conversation, and any other week it would be our headliner interview. This week, however, we are also joined by Gov. Bill Walker, his Chief of Staff Scott Kendall, and Revenue Commissioner Randy “Wild Bill” Hoffbeck to discuss the latest developments in what Forrest has termed “The budget standoff presented by Pete Kelly.”
Oh, and don’t worry, Forrest and Casey also share their unique takes on the all the political drama of the week, including Don Young’s AHCA vote and the wildly inappropriate behavior out of Wasilla’s legislative delegation.
