High-minded, earnest, relevant!

I’ve been a Scrum listener for years (and three-time guest). I really like the guys who do the show, and that it is both a serious political podcast, but isn’t stuffy or boring. (But let me say I think stuffy and boring people would really respect the work.)

I also like their background music a lot. I kind of want that as a ringtone.

Essential listening

The Scrum covers all things #mapoli. You can’t claim to be up on the news until you’ve heard it!

Mass legislature, look behind the curtain!

Mike Deehan’s 3 January episode brings clarity to the way legislation moves, or not, through the State House. It may not be unusual compared to other State Houses, but that doesn’t mean we should put up with it. Too much power over legislation lies in the hands of the Speaker, this needs to change as the system is ripe for corruption.The euphemism “they ran out of time” is maddening.
