    Liv-ing up to the County's full potential

    Ashley and Jonathan are back post-Thanksgiving, grateful to be joined by County Councilwoman Liv Bennett. Bennett dropped tons of knowledge about what the County Council has been up to, like passing a bill banning discrimination based on hair style, to what it will be considering, like a county Independent Police Review Board.

    The Election Countdown, Part 2

    With Nov. 3 less than six weeks away, Ashley & Jonathan talk about the recent events in Louisville and how they speak to the need for systemic change, starting with who is representing us at all levels of government. With that in mind, they welcomed in State Representative Sara Innamorato, one of UNITE's four endorsed candidates this election, to talk about how the state legislature can help impact change and how engaging in that process is important.
