    Dueling Arizona Ballot Measures Could Juice Voter Turnout

    As abortion access advocates canvas the state gathering signatures to get a ballot initiative in front of voters, Republican lawmakers in Arizona advanced an immigration enforcement referendum of their own.

Really "fair and balanced"

This is the only podcast I've found that actually explains the horror that is US politics these days, in an impartial and factual way. No fake news here!
