In our April 2 episode, Casey Reynolds and Forrest Dunbar invite Alaska Dispatch News reporter Devin Kelly in to talk about Anchorage’s upcoming elections, how the Berkowitz administration is doing almost two full years into office, and what it’s like to be a reporter in the age of Trump.
In our March 26 episode, Casey Reynolds and Forrest Dunbar invite Alaska’s former U.S. Senator Mark Begich back to discuss the failure of the GOP’s healthcare bill in Congress and what it means for Alaska and our congressional delegation, the Alaska state budget, Begich’s effort to increase the number of red state Democrats in his party, and we even get into Anchorage local politics a little bit.
Begich rallies moderate Dems, Sadler argues with kiddies, and Felix rakes in cash. It’s Friday in the Sun!!!
FreedomWorks may be coming, Uber may not, and Stieren and Pruitt a couple no more. It’s Friday in the Sun!!!!
The many tales of Eagle River politics and Cathy Giessel’s bad, bad week. It’s Friday in the Sun!!!

In our January 29 episode, Casey Reynolds and Forrest Dunbar are joined by Anchorage Mayor Ethan Berkowitz to discuss Pres. Trump’s executive orders on immigration and whether Anchorage is a sanctuary city, the meaning of and next steps for the Women’s Marches that happened across Alaska, what we’ll see on the Muni ballot in April, and snow removal.
The eye wars return, Nees finds APOC’s weakness, and people get snow stupid. It is Friday in the Sun!
