The Midnight Sun Podcast for August 27, 2017

This week it seemed like everyone wants to run for governor, or at least wanted us to believe that they do. Hosts Casey Reynolds and Forrest Dunbar dig into all the gubernatorial race posturing as well as the fall out from the Alaska Supreme Court’s decision on Gov. Walker’s veto of PFD spending, the continued attacks on transgender folks at both the national and local level, and, of course, the Trump administration’s monumental Friday night news dump. Then we talk with former celebrity Alaska weatherman and current Alaska Marijuana Industry Association Executive Director Cary Carrigan about the state of the marijuana industry in Alaska. We may also get his expert take on Hurricane Harvey, and boy does he have a good one.


The Midnight Sun Podcast for August 20, 2017

Wow, what a week in politics, both nationally and here at home. Hosts Casey Reynolds and Forrest Dunbar discuss the political fallout from the financial quagmire of Alaska’s paper of record and share our thoughts on the Steve Bannon firing (or was it a resignation?) before getting to our comprehensive discussion of the events in Charlottesville with former local NAACP leader and current Anchorage Human Rights Commission President Wanda Green, Juneau lawyer and ACLU of Alaska board member Paul Grant, and Democrat candidate for Virginia’s 5th congressional district Roger Huffstetler.  





The Midnight Sun Podcast for August 13, 2017

Hosts Casey Reynolds and Forrest Dunbar are both back after a short summer break and boy do they have a lot to cover. There is, of course, the failure of the Trumpcare and its impact on how Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s is viewed by Americans and her own constituents here in Alaska. We also delve into the Legislature’s many, many special sessions, how the Governor and Lt. Governor primaries are already shaping up, and the unfortunate events in Chancellorsville, Virginia over the weekend. And don’t worry, Anthony Scaramucci (The MOOOOCH!) even gets some time on this week’s podcast.
