    Andy Acts Solo on Racially-Charged Issues w/Rep. Chad Aull (LD 79) #ColonelsOfTruth

    This week, Nema, Dr. Clardy and Aaron get a legislative update from Lexington’s own, Rep. Chad Aull, from LD 79 here in Fayette County - we quiz him on what was the SINGLE WORST piece of legislation that the GOP super majority foisted on the commonwealth, and what the prospects are for breaking that super-majority in the next General Assembly. Then in the news of the week, our hosts update you on Governor Beshear's new executive actions on a couple of racially-charged issues that the legislature failed to address, and then we close out with our call to action!

GulfAaron ,

Entertaining! Inspiring! Informative!

Progress Kentucky reliably brings on great guests & co-hosts. If you want to follow Kentucky politics, this show is a great resource, week in and week out.

Steve Stewart Sharp ,

Save America! Retire Mitch!

Do you like sending a letter for 50 cents or $8.50 at Fed Ex? Do you like affordable healthcare? Do you like worker safety or fair wage? No? What about tax breaks and corporate welfare state for really rich companies? Do you like tax breaks for Russian oligarchs or Chinese paper mills in Kentucky? Yes! Then you are probably Mitch McConnell and need to be retired! I approve this podcast
