Straight talk, no chaser!

WPC’s podcast cuts to the core of the key issues facing Washingtonians in the areas of taxation, small business, education, agriculture, labor, and the environment. The speakers focus on the facts that inform practical solutions for these issues, rather than getting bogged down with bipartisan politics. 5 stars!
