How to keep current on Alaskan politics and happenings
I utilize this Michael Dukes podcast to stay current on all the Alaska politics and happenings. Many of the state legislatures call in to discuss their opinions on active topics. I leave the show informed and having a greater understanding of the working of our governmental processes.
So glad to get he podcast of this. Work out of cell range. Love to hear this show. Informative and on point. God bless you for this.
This man is the heartbeat of Alaska. We are fortunate to have such a steady and consistent person keeping us informed everyday. He works tirelessly for us. I am proud to share my home state with a man of Michael’s caliber (pun intended)!
